UConn vs. Gonzaga final score, results: Huskies blow out Bulldogs to reach Final Four

UConn made it look easy during the NCAA tournament. The Huskies rolled past No. 13 Iona on the first lap. They defeated Saint Mary’s No. 5 in the second round. They routed Arkansas #8 in the Sweet 16.

And on Saturday, in their much-anticipated duel with No. 3 Gonzaga, the No. 4 Huskies put on their most dominant performance yet. They outplayed the Bulldogs by 21 points in the second half en route to an 82-54 demolition of one of college basketball’s most enduring forces and holed their ticket to their first Final Four under Dan Hurley.

The Huskies appeared to be in control for most of the tournament, but the momentum turned completely in their favor when Drew Timme was called for his fourth foul by Gonzaga at 17:39 of the second half. The NCAA tournament’s top scorer went on the bench and was out just under three minutes, but during that time the Huskies enjoyed a 14-3 run to extend their lead to 21.

Three of UConn’s starters accumulated double-digit points, with Jordan Hawkins leading all players with 20, Alex Karaban dropping 12, and Adama Sanogo hitting 10 as part of a 10-rebound double-double. Timme led all Bulldogs by 12 points but was held to just one point after his fourth foul and just three points in the second half.

While the game means the continuation of the 2022-23 season for the Huskies, it also means the end for the Bulldogs and likely Timme’s college career. Timme had an emotional exit from the competition with just under two minutes to go. He may return for the 2023/24 season but the record center said he plans to continue.

The Huskies meet the winner of Sunday’s Elite Eight game between Miami and Texas. They are seeking their first national championship spot since winning the title in 2014.
