There are just four teams remaining to compete for the 2021 national championship. After a long winding road to reach the Final Four from a field of 68 teams in mid-March, only No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 1 Baylor, No. 2 Houston and No. 11 UCLA are left standing with a chance to hoist the trophy.

The Bruins may be an underdog story this season, but they are the most successful program in college basketball history with 11 championships. This, however, marks their first Final Four appearance since 2008 and if they win the title, it will be the first since 1995. The Bulldogs, on the other hand, are on a history-making tour of their own. Gonzaga is looking to become the first team since Indiana in 1976 to complete the season undefeated and as national champions.

In the second semifinal game, it’s a showdown of Lone Star State foes with Baylor facing Houston. The Bears are in their first Final Four in 70 years and have consistently been one of the best teams in the country all season long. In their way stands the overlooked Cougars, led by Kelvin Sampson, who have been nearly as dominant all season in the American Athletic Conference. Houston has been a favorite in every game this season, but will be underdogs for this showdown in Indianapolis.
