It looks bad now, but if a team can come back from a 3-0 series defict, the Zags aren't dead yet.

That game was over when it was 9-0. It was obvious Gonzaga wasn't gonna do shit against this team. Baylor had 16, yes fukking 16 more FG attempts in the first half than Gonzaga did. That's what turning the ball over 8 times and giving up 9 offensive rebounds in a half will do for you.
Terribly and incredibly disappointing.
Maybe Few will decide he needs to start stressing playing defense cuz this team played little all year.

What game were you watching? Baylor came out with 100% effort, dominated as much as you can against a team like Zaga, ran out of steam towards the end of the first half when Zaga finally woke up. The second half was a slug fest from hell with both teams leaving everything on the floor. I get some people don't like a defensive oriented game but too damn bad. I loved every minute.

It was obvious that Zaga had not seen D like this in any game perhaps for a couple of years. Every pass, every move, every dribble and every shot was challenged and they were simply not ready for it. By the time they tried to adapt, it was too late. And Baylor's offence was very potent, hitting from the outside and taking the high percentage paint points as well. This was a full spectrum domination complete with plenty of losers limps coming from Zaga who were constantly needing butt rubs and what not.

I think it's clear that UCLA beat Gonzaga; it just took two days to pay off.

Congrats to Baylor!

It's not that it was a defensive oriented game.  It's that Baylor jumped out to a comfortable lead and were never (while I was watching) in jeopardy of losing that lead.  If one team goes up by 10 in the first 5 minutes of a game, but the two teams play a completely even game from that point on, to me it's boring.  I love a pitcher's duel, and I love high scoring shootouts.   As long as it's close.

At the risk of sounding like the sour grapes guy, I find it interestingly weak(ly criminal) that someone comes in spouting about their (supposed) team after the fact. 14 pages and nary a peep and then "his team" wins and it's trash talking time. I think if I'd avoided coming in after the beatdown of my team (and yes, it was a beatdown) I wouldn't have a leg to stand on here but that wasn't the case as I was here minutes after the game ended.
But hey weak(ly criminal) enjoy. The better team won.

It was at the Peppermill in Reno.  Suggs at 8.5 total points seemed an absurdly easy bet on the over, and I don't imagine it was up for long.

Back to back games where Gonzaga got out-rebounded, and this second game it was by 16.  Combine that with great 3-point shooting and you're in for along night.  It was impressive how Baylor managed to repeatedly fight Gonzaga off once they had established that lead, and fun to watch as a fan of the game.  Just great execution.

Baylor shot more than 43% from 3 point land and almost 45% otherwise. Hard to beat a team shooting that well and playing even okay defense. The only thing that Gonzaga did better was shoot 51% from inside the arc.

Which was way under their record-setting season average of 63.7% for 2-pt shooting.
