Gonzaga is one of the best teams in college basketball. It needed zero help jumping out to a double-digit lead in its second-round NCAA tournament matchup with Baylor on Saturday. Nonetheless, the basketball gods provided some.

Heck, he didn’t even hit the rim. It was one of the cleanest 3-pointers of the tournament. It was also undoubtedly the luckiest.

Gonzaga, the top seed in the West region, leads Baylor 33-16 with under five minutes left in the first half.
