Baglor beat Houston 78:59 in the first semifinal. The second NCAA finalists, Gonzaga – UCLA, needed extra time to settle the game, as there was a 81:81 draw after the regular time of the game. When Johnny Juzang from UCLA led to another draw, 90:90, 3.3 seconds from the end of the match, it looked like there was a second overtime. But then, Jalen Suggs took the ball in his hands, ran over half the field and with a throw from almost the midfield shocked everyone.
Gonzaga won 93:90 and advanced to Sunday’s final, where, as expected before the start of the so-called March Madness (NCAA playoffs), he will face Baylor.
Even LeBron was impressed! “This is one of the best races I’ve seen in a long time!”
“Oh! Wow! This is one of the best fights in a long time!” – NBA star LeBron James did not hide his impression on Twitter. The LA Lakers could not play for several weeks due to an ankle injury. Interestingly, he did not have the opportunity to play in the academic league, as he joined the NBA immediately after high school in 2003.
“Jalen Suggs is made of different clay! Wow!” – wrote former NBA player Dwayne Wade. The current stars of the best basketball league in the world were also happy with Suggs Throw Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks) or Ja Morant (Memphis Grizzlies).
Jalen Suggs is under 20 years old and plays the position of quarterback and throwback defender. In his first year in the NCAA, he averaged 14 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game. It is expected that a draft will be selected in the first five places of the NBA this year.
