The time has finally come- the NCCA National Basketball Championship has been set.
The two remaining seeds both happen to be #1 seeds, however with completely different histories. For UNC and Roy Williams, they are hoping to win yet another championship. Williams himself is aiming to get his third championship, which would break his tie with legendary UNC basketball coach Dean Smith.
For coach Mark Few and Gonzaga, on the other hand, this is more of an underdog story for them. Even though they are a #1 seed this tournament, this is actually the first time Gonzaga has reached the national championship game. Few and his team are now looking to win the school’s first-ever national championship.
Despite different backgrounds, both teams have one common goal in mind; winning the national championship. Fans should be looking forward to a great game, especially when it comes to the offensive side. UNC has the best rebounding team in the tournament, which should work in their favor. Gonzaga, on the other hand, has a better 3-point percentage shooting than UNC, which should be a tough test for the UNC defense.
For college basketball fans, this should be a very interesting matchup between two completely different schools. UNC is looking for redemption after their heartbreaking loss against Villanova last year, while Gonzaga is chasing history. One thing is certain- each team is going to bring 100% to their game.
