ANALYSIS: What a great matchup, just the ninth time that two No. 1 seeds meet in the title game – the schools were supposed to play Dec. 5 also in Indianapolis, but it was canceled due to COVID. The preseason No. 1 vs. the preseason No. 2 in the AP Top 25 and the best two-point shooting team in the nation (Gonzaga) vs. the best three-point shooting team (Baylor). I don’t want to overreact to Gonzaga being pushed to the absolute limit in the Zags’ thrilling Final Four overtime win over 11th-seeded UCLA, but perhaps the Bruins did provide a roadmap to beat this amazing team. There’s also the fact Gonzaga might be a bit physically and emotionally drained following that victory, while Baylor barely broke a sweat in its rout of Houston. I have to go with the team that played the much tougher schedule and that’s Baylor, which is 6-0 against AP Top 10 teams.
