The UCLA Bruins and Gonzaga Bulldogs are on their way to the Sweet 16 of the 2023 NCAA Tournament.

And while Gonzaga got the win vs TCU, TCU did manage one of the greatest backdoor covers in NCAA Tournament history, with Damion Baugh hitting a not-at-all meaningless 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds remaining to cover +4.5
