Baylor totally dominated the first half but somehow, Gonzaga is only down 10. That's got to be a little concerning for Baylor.

Remember this one Nate, Suggs is about to take this game over. He’s seen the ball go through the hoop a few times and managed to avoid that 3rd foul.

It’s go time

They're going to need Suggs to go super saiyan, the way the Baylor guards are shooting tonight.

I don’t know if Gonzaga can win this without more perimeter shooting. Their only offense is Suggs putting pressure on the defense. Nembhard and Ayayi have been no shows in the biggest game of the year.

Poor Suggs. Entire team mailing it in. Playing selfishly. Ayayi with a disappearing act.

Baylor has been absolutely incredible at both ends of the floor. Gonzaga cannot get a single comfortable look. And every open look Baylor gets from 3, they hit.

Very impressive X and Os by Baylor. Brooks ya dummy are you watching??

Ps: Really like Butler. Very composed. Great shooting stroke and solid vision.

From a scouting perspective: this should end the “Timme NBA?” Talk. Getting totally dominated in the paint.

Jared Butler doing what he’s done all year. Playing championship basketball.

Butler actually reminds me of Beal the way he moves offensively ... The way he stops and starts and just finds his way through the defense.

Was anybody really talking about Timme in the NBA? He looks like a classic college center to me. He is very skilled, but just not big and athletic enough to function at the NBA level.

He's a great college talent though.

Suggs had a shaky start, then snapped back to excellence.

The rest of Gonzaga has lost their heart.

Mitchell's big weakness is that he isn't much of a finisher around the rim.

You’d be surprised. It’s actually been a hot discussion topic on the main board/Twitter.

I’m not buying it at all.

Love watching Suggs compete to the finish line while his entire team just quit.

Davion Mitchell is just electric. Jared Butler is cold blooded.

That was incredible vision on that pass just now. I'm loving everything Suggs is doing.

His team is going to lose, but he's trying to carry them anyways.

That Baylor backcourt is legendary. Teague isn’t a NBA prospect, but he was such a great 3rd wheel all year.

Or, not.

Baylor has totally outclassed Gonzaga. I’m surprised at how one-sided this has been.

I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen a team so outmatched in the championship. Without Suggs this could be a 40 pt beat down.
