Indianapolis-Corey Kispert (Corey Kispert) greeted his coach on the sidelines the last time he checked out, then cried in the tears of his teammates and quickly wrapped his arm around Around Jalen Suggs.
Unbelievable and realistic existence: Gonzaga’s pursuit of perfection failed and was stopped by an aggressive Baylor team that never let the Bulldogs find the seamless execution that they often use throughout the season.
The Bulldogs-who seemed to have gotten all the hits from the beginning of the season-ended the season’s out-of-sync and out of touch showed that they lost to the Bears 86-70 in the NCAA championship game on Monday night.

“You will do everything you can to flip the switch,” coach Mark Few said. “But yes, it’s tough. It’s hard to generate rhythm when they are constantly becoming more aggressive on both ends. We scored a few times and we can no longer get continuous pauses to make up for some gaps and then we Did not help ourselves-we turned the ball over and we did not free throws.”
Gonzaga (31-1) shot 51%, but after the highest 91.6 points in the United States, the game ended with a season-low 70 points. However, in addition to these numbers, the simplest fact is that Zags seems to be trying to put everything together to deal with the situation where the Bears crossed Houston in the national semifinals and then appeared on offense.
It is difficult for offense to get a neat appearance or three-pointers as early as possible. Reliable defense won’t slow the Bears’ 3-point shooting percentage. The Bulldogs can’t get Baylor out of trouble and continue to make mistakes. Some people just grab the ball on their own.
In the middle of the first half, Gonzaga unexpectedly dropped to 19.
Kispert said: “They just don’t allow you to do what you usually do.” “I’m very used to this happening. We will continue to work hard, move on, and fight back really faster than us. I’m a little accustomed to reaction time. Faster.”
Suggs is a freshman and the best NBA draft player. He defeated UCLA in overtime from the Kolkata halftime in the national semifinals on Saturday in overtime, thus remembering his name in The lore of the game. He started the game when he missed a three-pointer and was immediately fouled when he rushed past the guard.
A few minutes later, when the Bears fouled for the second time, he sat down because the Bears had a 9-0 lead on Zags.
Saggs eventually returned and scored a team-high 22 points, 15 points after halftime. The problem is that the Zags team never seemed to unite everyone like it did throughout the season, staring at a huge deficit almost all night.
The Associated Press National First Team’s Kispert (Kispert) did not seem to have a lot of clean performance, only scoring 12 points and two three-pointers. Second-class driver Drew Timme also had 12 points, but only shot 7 goals in the second half with troublesome fouls and obvious injuries.
Gonzaga made only 5 of 17 three-pointers, the lowest in 6 NCAA tournaments. Zags struggled all night, and Bears showed aggressive defense, which implies that there is no need to worry about being defeated by the dribble.
Few people say: “They literally destroyed everything we could do on the offensive end.” “We are a bit sideways.”
Zags had been here before, leading a loss-making team until the last night of the season four years ago, and then lost to North Carolina. For a team that has only won two games, in addition to double-digit profits, the damage to the team may be even greater.
