National Championship

1.Baylor vs. 1.Gonzaga
Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis, IN)
April 5, 9:20 PM ET, CBS

Happy Easter everyone! Baylor and Gonzaga will square off for the 2021 NCAA College Basketball National Championship Game on Monday. Gonzaga and Baylor are clearly the best two teams in the country and for most of the season were on a collision course to meet on the last Monday of the season. Baylor’s rough patch at the end of the season after their COVID pause and Gonzaga’s competitive game versus UCLA shows that clearly these two teams are human and could go on cold spells offensively and defensively. Jalen Suggs’ (14.1 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 4.6 APG) game-winner sent the Bulldogs to just its second title game ever. Also for the Zags, is sharpshooting forward Corey Kispert (18.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG) and talented big man Drew Timme (19.2 PPG, 7.1 RPG) make up most of their scoring. Guards Joel Ayayi and Andrew Nembhard, who transferred from Florida, are key players for the Bulldogs that if they get going, can help the Zags finish the Bears on Monday night. Baylor’s perimeter is led by All-Americans Jared Butler (16.6 PPG, 4.7 APG), Davion Mitchell (14.0 PPG, 5.5 APG), and sharpshooting MaCio Teague (15.8 PPG, 4.0 RPG) are phenomenal on the perimeter. As you can see the perimeter is honestly a toss-up with the talent on the perimeter for both teams. But, Gonzaga clearly has the advantage inside as Drew Timme has been one of, if not the best tournament of any player, taking on talented defensive big man Mark Vital for the Bears. Projected Score: Baylor 80, Gonzaga 77
