At a watch party in Houston, fans were still proud to chant 'GO COOGS' despite the team's lost to Baylor in Saturday's matchup.

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana -- The season has come to an end for the University of Houston's men's basketball team. Baylor has now made it into the NCAA championship game and will wait to see if No. 1 Gonzaga can provide the much-anticipated final.

Here's how the game went:

Jared Butler didn't score in the second half, but the second-ranked Bears didn't need any more points from their All-American guard after he scored 17 to help them take a 25-point halftime lead in a 78-59 victory over Houston.

Gonzaga, the tournament's No. 1 overall seed, plays 11th-seeded UCLA in the late game.

It's the second trip to the championship game for Baylor. The other was in 1948, when the Bears lost to Kentucky 58-42. This is Baylor's first trip to the Final Four since 1950, when only eight teams were in the tournament.
