Gonzaga forward Corey Kispert may be Jenn Wirth’s favorite player, but Saturday night was all about guard Jalen Suggs’ overtime heroics.
Wirth, Kispert’s longtime girlfriend, celebrated Suggs’ buzzer-beating 3-pointer in Saturday’s Final Four win over the UCLA Bruins, in which the Gonzaga Bulldogs punched their ticket to Monday’s national title game in the NCAA Tournament.
“Trust your shot!!! So clutch @jsuggs23,” Wirth posted to her Instagram story. “Thanks for the heart attack @ZagBB. Great stinkin’ win!”
Gonzaga remains undefeated following its 93-90 win over the Bruins. Gonzaga will face the Baylor Bears in the championship game.
In addition to Wirth — who recently celebrated her third dating anniversary with 22-year-old Kispert — several sports stars also reacted to Suggs’ stunning shot.
“I said SUGGS about to his this as soon as he crossed half court. GAME!!” LeBron James tweeted.
“ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!? #FinalFour,” Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes posted.
“I see you Suggs! #Zags #finalfour2021 What a game!” former Saints quarterback Drew Brees wrote.
Wirth, 22, a fellow Gonzaga basketball star, has been cheering on the Bulldogs throughout the tournament. Last week, she posted a sweet social media message as Gonzaga reached the Final Four.
As for Kispert, a 6-foot-7 senior, he has averaged 18.8 points in the 2020-21 season, according to ESPN. In Saturday’s win, Kispert scored 15 points and had five rebounds and five assists.
Kispert is expected to be a top selection in this year’s NBA draft.
