INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The UCLA Bruins needed to bring its A-game in order to beat the incredibly powerful Gonzaga Bulldogs, and boy, the Bruins did not disappoint; as UCLA went toe to toe with Gonzaga all game long. The game would need extra time, as regulation ended with the two teams tied up at 81-81. It should be noted, that Drew Timme made perhaps the most important play of the game by drawing a charge in the paint to force the turnover. However, it wasn't until the end of the first overtime that the game ended courtesy of a Jalen Suggs, who hit a 30+ foot 3-pointer to win it at the buzzer.

Gonzaga wins 93-90. 

The Bulldogs are now 31-0 heading into the National Championship Game against Baylor hoping to make history, by becoming the first team to go undefeated since 1975-76, when the Indiana Hoosiers ran the table under legendary coach, Bobby Knight.
