Didn't we want March Madness? Well here we have it. His name is Jalen Suggs. The madness of March has already arrived in April, but the best game of the university basketball tournament in the United States has arrived just in time, although etymologically it does not seem like it. One of those shots that will be remembered forever took place in the second semifinal of the Indiana Final Four. How to take your team to the final, saving it from a second overtime that endangered an unbeaten that lasted 30 games, and on top of it being one of those heroes that remains in the history books? You have to ask him.

Suggs is, by far, the best player in the NCAA after youngsters escaped to the G-League to play for Ignite. It is, of the university tournament, the one that opts to be number one of the NBA Draft 2021. With this accolade he reinforces his candidacy.

It won't be because Johnny Juzang didn't try. His was the basket that preceded madness. A quality individual action, looking for space to knock down the opponent's defense, which tied the game at 90. Then came Suggs' shot from a little closer to the middle of the court. Instantly, as it came out of his hand, he knew it was coming in. Juzang was the leader of a more individualistic UCLA but effective to stop the one who is the favorite to take the championship. The outside of the Angelenos went up to 29 points, being the top scorer of this match, and stole the ball from Suggs himself in the last second of regulation time to avoid a shot that avoided the extension.

Drew Timme, with 25 points, and Joel Ayayi, with 22 points, were the most successful of the Bulldogs. Suggs played the last ball and didn't need much more. With this they advance to the final, to be played the next night from Monday to Tuesday.

Gonzaga will meet Baylor

Gonzaga will have an interesting test if he wants to win the title. It is only the second time they have reached the national final, being the first in 2017 (defeated by South Carolina), and in the semifinals there was an interesting contrast. The other team that will play the final game, Baylor, beat their rival, Houston, without any problems.

The Bears, led by Jared Butler (17 points), put a hellish set against the Cougars in the first half, 45-20, to give no option.

In the year after the pandemic, with all the March Madness held in the state of Indiana to avoid trouble, the young and not-so-young were eager to see this basketball. Suggs has caught it hard, but Baylor threatens the Zags' dream season, scoring zero in losses.
