Gonzaga vs. Baylor live result, updates, outstanding scores from the 2021 NCAA national championship
A match separates Gonzaga and Baylor from the eternal – and for the first time – glory.
The Bulldogs and Bears, who are considered two major teams not only in the NCAA Championship but have been agreed upon throughout college basketball, will compete against each other on Monday to win the 2021 national men’s championship.
Who will win history will also be made: Gonzaga could become the first non-victorious basketball team from Indiana to 1975-76, and Baylor could win the first March Madness title for Lone Star State from Texas Western (now UTEP known as) 1966.
Although the history is in line, they will be much more interesting on the court. Will Mark Few’s team – led by the dreaded trio of Drew Timme, Jalen Suggs and Corey Kispert – make up his dominance? While one of them is lagging behind, it’s worth noting that every Bulldog starter, including Joel Ayayi and Andrew Nembhard, has won the last four games with double figures against UCLA. Nembhard (4 shots from 9) shot less than 50 percent.
Baylor, however, is no slouch. Each opponent in the previous March’s Madness has won with multiple possessions and embarrassed Houston’s seed 2 in the quarterfinals. The Bears have a disturbing trio of players Jared Butler, Davion Mitchell and Macio Teague, who have had tremendous defensive success against the Cougars.
Can Baylor coach Scott Drew come up with a scheme to stop the Zags ’attack, or will the Bulldogs dominate again?
