Indiana made good strides in Kelvin Sampson's first year at the helm, but the Zags knocked the Hoosiers out of the tournament with relative ease despite being an underdog according to the seedings. Gonzaga entered the tournament with a #10 seed but completely dismantled Indiana in this one thanks to steady fundamental play and a great game from senior guard #5, who had 22 points. The rest of the Zags followed his lead and worked the ball around for solid, open looks, resulting in Gonzaga's 52% effort from the floor. Indiana's senior guard #10 led his team with 18 points in his final college game.

It wasn't quite Villanova over Georgetown in '85, but in the annals of near-perfection in NCAA Tournament games, this upset has to rank up there. The Zags came in undermanned and lightly-regarded, but they managed to take care of the ball about as well as could ever be expected, turning it over only seven times against UCLA's vaunted defensive pressure. Meanwhile, offensively the Zags displayed patience and an amazing shooting eye, hitting 62% of their shots in this game while ducking every potential UCLA knockout punch. The Bruins last led at 69-67, but a three-pointer and two free throws pushed the Zags up by three, and they slowly extended the lead as UCLA's offense failed them at the end of the game. Gonzaga's senior guard #5 scored 26 points on 9-of-11 shooting to lead all scorers, while UCLA got 20 points from junior guard #4.
