“Won by a lucky shot.”
And with that, awful Fox Sports talker Skip Bayless has again earned his mark after his ridiculous take on what will eventually become a classic moment in sports.
The moment was Jalen Suggs’ 55-foot game winner for the Gonzaga Bulldogs as they beat the 11-seed UCLA Bruins 93-90 to stay perfect and move on to Monday’s title game in the NCAA Basketball Tourney.
It’s tough to find a ton wrong with the way Saturday’s game turned out, even if you’re not a fan of either team or of the tourney in general.
Bayless, who in the past has simply thrown up random tweets to get a response, took to Twitter to voice one of the dumbest opinions that anyone could possibly have about the amazing game and the way the Final Four affair finished.
No idea how you can call that an all-time great college basketball game when it was won by a lucky shot.

It’s hard to think of a more exciting moment in sports than when a player comes down the court and makes a heroic, game-winning shot.
Suggs did that on Saturday, and Bayless simply brushed it off as no big deal.
Gonzaga’s radio call is goosebump city.
Only gets better when you learn the guy screaming on the call is Adam Morrison. pic.twitter.com/gdh49dcJrG

Bayless, as one would expect today, is taking it hard on Twitter. Fans are not sharing the same opinion about the final few seconds and are letting him know about it in replies to his tweet from Saturday evening.
