Happy Monday! Thankfully for those recovering from the weekend, today isn’t your average Monday. Today (or tonight, rather) will see the crowning of this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament champion.
For those who haven’t been paying attention or don’t do sports, tonight’s teams vying for the championship are Gonzaga and UNC. While on the surface, it may seem like a boring battle for the tournament title (both are number one seeds), but it’s far from it.
UNC has been here before, just last year in fact, but they haven’t won since 2009. For Gonzaga, the eternal underdogs, tonight is a chance to prove that they’re a legit basketball powerhouse.
Gonzaga made it through their first Final Four appearance to make it to tonight, which, as you might have correctly concluded, is their first NCAA tournament championship.
The good news is no matter who you’re rooting for or whether it was a good year or a bad year for your bracket, after tonight you can either enjoy the spoils of your victory or start rethinking your strategy for next year.
Until then, here’s a reminder that you weren’t the only one to get your picks wrong this year…
