Live from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, two No. 1 seeds collide as the Baylor Bears (27-2) and Gonzaga Bulldogs (31-0) meet in the NCAA championship game.
After weeks of upsets and last-second buzzer-beaters, Gonzaga and Baylor are the two teams left standing. Baylor easily defeated No. 2 seed Houston in Saturday’s Final Four matchup, while Gonzaga needed some late magic to put away No. 11 seed UCLA in overtime. There’s a lot on the line tonight as both teams hope to capture their program’s first men’s NCAA basketball championship, but Gonzaga also has a chance at college basketball immortality. If the Bulldogs can defeat Baylor, they’ll be the first undefeated men’s championship team since Bob Knight’s 1975-76 Indiana Hoosiers.
