Baylor vs Gonzaga
April 8, 2021
With the 3 sports writers in our class we all chose Gonzaga to win it all. I even took a shot and counted out Baylor losing to North Carolina second round. It didn’t work out though as we can see. Then seeing them play Gonzaga in the championship I was expecting a closer game by 1 or 2 points, not a difference of 16. Gonzaga played the very best game they have played this season.
Baylor was just more sound and more comfortable in the situation. Baylor defense wasn’t crumpling like Gonzaga’s defense started in the beginning of the game. I would honestly say the first half of the game was the best, even though the first half was a 10 point difference instead of the second half being a 6 point difference.
I feel Baylor could get their offence plays going faster and more efficient in situations. They were just out shooting Gonzaga making 5 more shots in total of Gonzaga. Free throws are a big point in basketball and Baylor only missed 2 while Gonzaga missed 6. We all know getting rebounds is a big part of the game. Baylor just totally outdid Gonzaga by snagging 16 more boards then them. They kept keeping second chances to with 16 offensive rebounds.
