Gonzaga’s Drew Timme defends UCLA’s Kenneth Nwuba under the basket during 2021 game in Las Vegas. While their history is history, the Bulldogs and Bruins have had several memorable games.

LAS VEGAS — Nearly two years later, Mick Cronin still hasn't watched the video of Jalen Suggs' 40-foot buzzer beater that carried Gonzaga past UCLA 93-90 in overtime at the 2021 Final Four in Indianapolis.

The Bruins' fourth-year head coach watched video of that instant classic as well as Gonzaga's 83-63 rout over UCLA last season at T-Mobile Arena, but he froze the image after Johnny Juzang scored on a putback with 3.3 seconds remaining.
