The Gonzaga Bulldogs remain undefeated.
Behind a 30-point, 13-rebound performance from Drew Timme, the Zags took down No. 8 Oklahoma in a hard-fought 84-70 battle in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.
The Gonzaga forward credited his team’s blueprint for success in guiding them to another victory in the tournament.
“Just a great game plan,” Timme told CBS sideline reporter Lauren Shehadi. “We just took what the defense gave us. It feels good to come out on top, especially against such a good team like Oklahoma.”
Two games down, four to go. Gonzaga now advances to the Sweet 16 for sixth-consecutive NCAA Tournament (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2021), the best streak among all men’s college basketball teams. The Bulldogs have now also won 25 games in a row by 10 or more points.
How sweet it is! Here’s a look at how Zags fans and media reacted as the dance continues:
4 more, Zags. 4 more
