Gonzaga drills three-pointer in final seconds to clinch trip to Elite 8 as Drew Timme goes off

Mar 24, 2023

The first half looked like UCLA was going to coast to a trip to the Elite 8.

But they don’t call it March Madness for nothing.

The three-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs overcame the tremendous deficit, and not without stress at the end, to win an instant classic over No. 2 UCLA, 79-76.

The Bulldogs were down 46-33 at the half, but something was said in the locker room that made them look like a totally different team when everyone returned to the floor.

The Bulldogs fought all the way back (rather quickly) turning what seemed like an insurmountable deficit into, well, the same thing - just the other way around. The Bulldogs went on a 20-3 run at one point in the second half to lead by 10 with 2:30 to go.
