Final Four Score:
Baylor’s best basketball season in program history will end with an appearance in the national championship game. The top-seeded Bears secured their spot at the table in stunning fashion as they boat raced No. 2 seed Houston 78-59 in Saturday’s Final Four.
Officially, the game ended at 6:15 p.m. ET. But unofficially, this one was over at halftime. Houston faced its largest deficit of the season at half when Baylor led 45-20. The Cougars never got within 16 points thereafter.
It’s no surprise given what Baylor has done all postseason that its magical run will end in a top-2 finish this season. It marked their fifth consecutive double-digit win to advance to the national title game for the first time since 1948.
Baylor vs. Houston score
The Houston Cagars may reach the national championship game for the third time in program history when they land on a boiler beer in the 2021 Final Four matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday. Houston made back-to-back championship games in 1983 and ’84 until the end of the Phi Slama Jama era. But the team famously lost to Jim Valvano and NC State in a ’83 game on a buzzer-banging sting and an ’84 contest for Patrick Ewing and Georgetown. The Cougars (28-3) will face the Boilers (26-2) on Saturday
Bearing down: Baylor routs Houston 78-59 to reach title game
Led by Jared Butler and the rest of their brilliant backcourt, a defense that refused to give Houston an inch and a coach intent on making the most of his first trip to the Final Four, the Bears roared to a 78-59 victory Saturday night in their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament semifinal.
