2021 NCAA Tournament bracket: College basketball scores, championship game schedule, stream, March Madness


0315-brackets.jpgGetty Images A new national champion has been crowned in men’s college basketball. Baylor, playing in its first title game since 1948, blew out Gonzaga in the final game of the 2021 NCAA Tournament to claim the title. The Bears, who began the year ranked No. 2 behind Gonzaga and remained there just about all season, came out on a mission and never gave the Zags a chance to settle in. 

Baylor led wire to wire and stifled any chances Gonzaga had at a comeback quickly. 

Below you can relive all the action over the last three weeks with game-by-game recaps and the full schedule of how the tournament took place. Thanks for staying with us throughout for continuing coverage of the 2021 NCAA Tournament and we’ll see you next year.
