As a freshman, Suggs averaged 14.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists for a deep and talented Gonzaga team that didn't taste defeat until the National Championship game. While he wasn't as ball-dominant as some of the other one-and-done freshman in the class, Suggs' athleticism stood out whenever he took the court, especially on the defensive end. He led the West Coast Conference in defensive rating and defensive win shares, plus checked in at No. 11 in the country in total steals. Suggs flirted with the elusive triple-double on multiple occasions, including an 18-point/10-rebound/6-assist effort against USC in the Elite Eight. His shining moment came in the Final Four against UCLA, however, as Suggs hit a game-winning three from just inside halfcourt to propel Gonzaga to the title game, where the Zags ultimately fell to Baylor.
