2006 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Regional Semi-Finals: UCLA vs. Gonzaga

2006 NR

In a surprising comeback, the second-seeded UCLA Bruins bested the Gonzaga Bulldogs in the 2006 NCAA regional semifinals by a score of 73-71. With just three minutes left in the game and down by nine points, the Bruins pulled off the unexpected win. After controlling most of the game, the third-seeded Bulldogs left the arena disappointed, and despite scoring 24 points, Gonzaga star Adam Morrison seemed emotionally crushed by the loss.
