UCLA and Gonzaga played what many consider an instant classic final four game but of course, hot take artist Skip Bayless was not impressed.
On Saturday night, Gonzaga won a back and forth game vs UCLA when Jalen Suggs drilled a deep buzzer-beating 3-pointer in overtime to send the Zags to the national championship game.

Bayless immediately took to Twitter to give the world his opinion on how UCLA-Gonzaga was not an all-time great basketball game because it ended on a lucky shot.
No idea how you can call that an all-time great college basketball game when it was won by a lucky shot.

College basketball fans went on to rip Skip to shreds over his awful take.

Only Skip Bayless could find a way to have a shit take about that game. I know he’s paid to be this obtuse but holy hell. https://t.co/ySqbGx4Ph1

This is Skip’s Mona Lisa. Nothing else comes close. He could tweet tomorrow that DeAndre Jordan is better than Michael Jordan and it wouldn’t come close to this https://t.co/EiNrA1v0pn
