The shot became a classic as soon as it dropped through the hoop. Jalen Suggs banked in a desperation 3-point at the end of overtime Saturday night to send undefeated Gonzaga to the men’s national championship game.

Suggs’ heave gave the Bulldogs, the top overall seed in the tournament, a 93-90 overtime win over 11-seed UCLA — and a date with Baylor in the title game Monday night in Indianapolis. It also set off a Twitter frenzy as everyone rushed to marvel at the shot and the game.

Gonzaga fans and the rest of Twitter were just stunned.
