The prestigious NCAA tournament is a big deal in the US and competes with the NBA for interest this time of year 68 elite college teams compete in a co-competition for the right to be named the best university team in the country

We were in the Final Four over the weekend and much of the US had its eyes on the TV when Gonzagas Jalen Suggs nailed an amazing summer beater to reserve the Bulldogs spot in the championship game

On a lay-up, UCLA put the score at 90-90 equal to 3 3 seconds left as the game was set for overtime but an inbounds pass found Suggs, who attacked the court before hailing a speculative hail Mary of just under thrown over half

The buzzer sounded after Suggs got his shot off and, incredibly, the ball sailed into the basket to get a miraculous three-pointer and score a 93-90 win

The win means that Gonzaga remains undefeated in all competitions this season and will put the icing on the cake in the final against Baylor

No college basketball team has been unbeaten and won the national title since Indiana in 1975 through 1976

Former tennis player turned analyst Patrick McEnroe called it “crazy” CBS Sports said, “We’ll see this shot forever,” while Sports Illustrated called it a “game to last”

Pro golfer became Instagram influencer and podcaster Paige Spiranac simply said “Holy S ** T” while soccer writer Grant Wahl wrote, “My God, thank you, basketball”

“How many better NCAA games anyway ?! 19 Change of leadership I’ve seen 40 years I’ll never forget this one ”

Sports journalist Peter Schrager added: “This was the best sporting event in 14 months Feels good”
