March Madness remains undefeated – as do the No. 1-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs, thanks to Jalen Suggs and arguably the best shot in NCAA men’s college basketball history.

If you missed Saturday’s Final Four clash between Gonzaga and No. 11 UCLA, you missed out on an all-time game. The semifinal had it all: it was tightly contested all game long, there were plenty of lead changes, loads of drama, an overtime period and, of course, the buzzer-beater to top all buzzer-beaters.

As the first OT was winding to a close, and with a second frame seemingly inevitable, the unthinkable happened.

We could describe the sequence for you, but it’s better if you just watch it yourself.

Are you kidding me?!?!

Unsurprisingly, Twitter went berserk after Suggs banked in the winner from well beyond the three-point line. In the wake of every single person watching the game simultaneously tweeting “WOW”, here are just some of the best reactions.
