The early rounds of the NCAA basketball tournament earned the name 2021 March Madness live with a whirlwind of upsets and surprises. After a flurry of additional shocks in the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight, the men’s college basketball season heads towards its last weekend with the Final Four on Saturday. The first matchup will feature two top teams when the Midwest region’s No. 2 Houston takes on Baylor, the South region’s top seed. The second game stars this year’s Cinderella team, UCLA — a winner in the tourney’s First Four play-in games — taking on the overall No. 1 ranked Gonzaga. The Zags are not only undefeated this season, but they’ve won their last 27 games by double digits (an NCAA Division I record).
Both games air Saturday on CBS. Here’s what you need to know about the 2021 men’s tournament.
