The shot was superb, indubitably. Additionally take into account the time left on the clock (3.3 seconds when Gonzaga inbounded the ball), the Closing 4 stage and back-and-forth nature of the sport, and lots of will depend this matchup among the many biggest in NCAA Match historical past.

Only for clarification, Bayless was unimpressed by this shot:

There’s actually nothing to say about Bayless’ opinion. He is dedicated to a bit, one which pays effectively and locations him within the information even when he is not doing something significantly newsworthy. However only for the sake of posterity, let’s be aware {that a} “fortunate” shot doesn’t detract from the greatness of this Closing 4 matchup — it solely provides to it. Every other opinion is asinine.

Say the shot was simply “fortunate.” Does that take away from Jaime Jaquez Jr. tying the sport with a putback with 3.3 seconds left in additional time? Does it take away from Drew Timme, with 4 fouls, drawing a cost on Johnny Juzang with 1.1 seconds in regulation on a would-be lead-changing Bruins possession? Does it take away from Suggs’ unimaginable sequence the place he blocked a Cody Riley dunk try after which dished a half-court bounce cross to Timme for a dunk? Does it take away from Juzang’s game-high 29 factors on 12-of-18 taking pictures? Or the 19 lead adjustments, or the truth that no crew led by greater than seven factors?

The solutions to these questions, so as: No, no, no, no, no and no.
