Saturday’s Final Four matchup between UCLA and Gonzaga present an interesting dichotomy.
On one hand you have undefeated, 30-0 Gonzaga. The Bulldogs are the 2021 NCAA Tournament’s top overall seed and aiming to become the first unbeaten team since Indiana in 1975-76. That said, they’ve never won an NCAA Tournament and have only one previous Final Four to their name, and that in 2017. On the other hand you have First Four team UCLA, which has enjoyed more Final Four success than any team in college basketball yet finds itself an overwhelming underdog to Gonzaga as the 11 seed out of the East Region.
