Jared Butler was spectacular for the Bears, leading the team with 22 points while dishing out a game-high seven assists. He also splashed four 3-pointers, and Baylor outscored Gonzaga 30-15 from beyond the arc.
Baylor's players can now call themselves champions for the first time in the program's 114-year history.
With the loss, Gonzaga failed to become the first men's college basketball team to go undefeated since 1976. Jalen Suggs led the way for the Bulldogs with a game-high 22 points.
