    Gonzaga was under pressure and they felt it. Still they managed to respond. Will that pressure to deliver remain? I like Baylor, but no way am I betting the farm on this one. Sit back enjoy what could be another classic in the making.

    More like snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory—and then back again. So nuts—was there and can’t describe the swing of emotions. Fun clip from Shel about the “trash talk” at the line.

    I forgot that had Wisconsin last the second round game, Butler would have played K State two straight years in the second weekend.

    I'm taking Baylor +5 and the under. Too hard not to take 5 points when both teams are juggernauts.

    Draft Kings had a promo where Zags +4.5 got boosted to +100. So took that. Go Zags!

    I’m probably undervaluing the way UCLA was playing, but Gonzaga reminded me of Oregon football awhile back. Early in the season they’d look unstoppable, but as soon as they came across a tough defense, they’d look human again.

    Baylor clearly has the defense and a great offense to back it up. I’m hoping for a great game and I’m really excited to see how this plays out.

    Also, as for Mack’s comment in the Pitt game, I think he finished with “... mine is 3.2”

    It's about depth. Baylor has the horses to stay on the court with Gonzaga and rifled through a much better conference and tougher draw in the tournament. Gonzaga is outstanding and fun as hell to watch. So is Baylor. I expect this to be a Knock down drag out and I'm hoping for a few OTs because I don't want this season to end. Then I'm stuck with the Cnba, Cmlb, Golf (ok cool) and Nascar (very fun) but no football or hoops for months and months. I guess we'll have horses.

    Logically this is probably the right call. Irrationally I can’t see Gonzaga not blowing them out. Why? I think Gonzaga is almost a perfect team but most importantly I’m really excited for a really good game, so naturally it’ll be terrible.

    Well... my favorite two college basketball teams have made 4 of the last 12 national championship games. Butler in ‘10 and ‘11 and Gonzaga in ‘17 and ‘21. I am 0-3. Let’s hope that luck turns tonight! Go Zags!!

    Baylor does not give up leads easily

    Welp. This one is over.

    Zags can’t rebound and that stupid **** ref Bo Boroski put Suggs on the bench with two bad foul calls.

    I'll give you a 50-50 on the first one but did you not see the replay on the 2nd foul?

    Called this several days ago. Zags not physically strong enough...or quick enough for an elite team like Baytor. This may not be close.

    Yeah the physical presence of Baylor is next level

    Timme looks as bad as it gets against a small Baylor front court

    there is no 50-50 on block/charge calls in College basketball... it's 75-25 charge every time
