The 2021 NCAA Tournament we waited so long for is rapidly coming to an end as a new national champion will be crowned on Monday night in Indianapolis. The field started with 68 teams all making the journey to the Hoosier State, and now, only No. 1 seeds Gonzaga and Baylor are left standing with the chance to claim their first national championship. Both teams have had fairly easy roads to this game, save for Gonzaga’s last game vs. UCLA.
Both teams have played in one title game previously and came up short. The Zags fell to North Carolina in 2017 when they carried a similar record into the title game. The Bears only appearance came way back in 1948 when they fell to Kentucky. Reminder: the tournament field some 70 years ago? Just eight teams. Now, Scott Drew was tasked with guiding Baylor through a field of 68!
Below, the tip times for the rest of the NCAA Tournament, including national semifinals and title game that will air on CBS.
