Gonzaga cruised to the Final Four, but the Bulldogs got a scare on Saturday night. UCLA pushed Gonzaga to the brink, and the top overall seed needed overtime and a last-second three-pointer to win the semifinal game.
Baylor has also been sharp in the NCAA Tournament, and it was impressive on Saturday night. The Bears blew out the Houston Cougars, and they will have plenty of momentum for Monday.
The Gonzaga Bulldogs are 4.5-point favorites over the Baylor Bears in the National Championship Game.
Baylor Guards Play Elite
Baylor has four guards who can all take over a game at any time, and they are led by Jared Butler. Butler was an All-American this season, and he lit it up on Saturday night.
Davion Mitchell had 11 assists against Houston, and he makes this Baylor offense go. MaCio Teague and Mark Vital do all of the little things for this squad.
Baylor was the best shooting team in the country this season, and it gets some great shots. The Bears can beat anyone if they are making shots, including Gonzaga.
This team also can really defend, and they will hound Gonzaga for the full 40 minutes.
