One for the history books. You can't write a finish any better unless it's UCLA winning with the upset.

Sucks to lose but it was a great postseason. Took a miracle to to the Zags as far as we did and a miracle shot to knock us out.

We shall see.

Side note - If I never see that "block" in Cody Riley again, I won't complain. Ugh

Fuck the NCAA always, but both the women's games and these men's ones have been full of some good endings. That Suggs shot.

A bit random. I missed not having the Sports Reporters show on TV this morning after the games last night.

Next year at Michigan will be interesting. Dickinson and a couple others are back but nine seniors on this year's team and Wagner's expected to go pro. Theoretically elite group of recruits coming in. This will be the year it becomes more Howard's team than the roster that Beilein built.

Baylor's D is faster than the Zags O right now.

Gonzaga needed to see this earlier in the season. Seeing this kind of pressure and guard play and length across the lineup this late in the season is hard to prepare for. And, Baylor is up and ready for this while Gonzaga looks rattled.

If Gonzaga can get it under 12 by the break, they have a shot. Otherwise, I don't know if they'll be able to withstand the pressure enough to come back.

Suggs looks almost nothing like the kid who drained a half-court shot to win in OT in Saturday.

Does Baylor rest the starters in the second half?

Congrats to Baylor. What a great tourney run.

The game that may have mattered the most in this one is the Dec 5 Gonzaga/Baylor game that wasn't played. If that game happens, are the Gonzaga players so rattled by seeing the Baylor defense? Are they undefeated still?

Great season by Gonzaga. Very good, well rounded team that came one game short of a perfect season.

Baylor deserves all the credit they get, but Gonzaga looked slow, tired and off. They were making some mistakes the D didn't have much to do with. Maybe they still lose if they had an easy game against UCLA, but I think this game would have been much better without the OT game 2 days earlier. At least we got to see a real end to the season.

I agree!

Baylor played with so much energy and Gonzaga played like they were expecting to coast to a championship. Very odd considering the Zags were lucky the previous game. Congrats to Baylor.

Not to take anything away from Baylor, but that is a different game if the refs call some of the body checking fouls on the perimeter. I love, love, love Mitchell but he's a great defender because he moves the ball carrier off his line when they drive. Thats generally a foul, but because it wasn't called, they got more brazen with it. Zags number 3 was completely flustered by this and taken out of his game. Suggs was too early, but seemed to rebound.


Again, not to belittle their accomplishment. They shoot unbelievably. But if Mitchell and Butler get 2-3 fouls on hand checks and body checks in the first half, its a different game.

Kinda glad Baylor won.

No shame in the Hogs losing in the Elite 8 to the eventual National Champion.

Makes me wish they seeded/grouped the teams by color now.

Fellas, it is okay to leave work and get a complete checkup when you pass out on the job.

The 56-year-old Buffalo native explained the doctor tricked him into sitting on the stretcher and quickly strapped him in, which led to the memorable photos of the referee looking disgruntled as he was wheeled off the court for further evaluation.

Smith said Trammel's work to diagnose the problem and the fact that his collapse came in a crowded environment with medical workers on scene may have saved his life.
