The national title game would have been held Monday, and Gonzaga had hoped, as it does every year, to cut down the nets to claim its first national championship in men’s basketball.

Those are some of the indelible images from the Zags’ 71-65 loss in the 2017 national championship game at University of Phoenix Stadium.
