Brandon Clarke had 36 points and five blocks as Gonzaga dispatched Baylor 83-71 in the Round of 32 on Saturday. With the win, the Bulldogs advance to their fifth straight Sweet 16, the longest active streak in Division I.

Clarke became just the third player to ever score at least 35 points and block five shots in an NCAA Tournament game, per Sports-Reference, joining Hall of Famers Shaquille O'Neal and David Robinson. His 83.3 field-goal percentage was also the best single-game mark in the tourney (minimum 15 field-goal attempts) since 1991, according to ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

Clarke added eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

It will be Gonzaga's eighth Sweet 16 appearance since Mark Few took the reins of the program in 1999. The Bulldogs now face Florida State next Thursday - a rematch of their Sweet 16 game from last year, which was won by the Seminoles, 75-60.
