Gonzaga got crushed 86-70 by Baylor in the national championship game on Monday night, and few people seemed to take the loss harder than Jalen Suggs.
Suggs, who hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer in overtime to beat UCLA on Saturday, was heartbroken after the defeat.
The freshman guard scored 22 to lead his team and was emotional.

Maybe Suggs was extra emotional because this might have been his last college game. He has not declared any intent about his future, but he is viewed by many as a top prospect if he leaves school for the NBA Draft.
Going 31-0 only to get rolled in the championship game has to be tough for everyone involved with Gonzaga’s program. But there is no doubt that Baylor was the better team on Monday.
