Gonzaga forward Drew Timme loses control of the ball ahead of Baylor guard Mark Vital, rear, during the second half of the championship game in the men's Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament April 5, 2021, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indiana.

It was a near-historic season for the Gonzaga men's basketball team. The Zags from Spokane lost to Baylor Monday night in the NCAA championship game, 86-70. KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel joined Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick live to talk about the game and the Zags' season.
