March Madness 2021 Possible Champions

A final clash between the Gonzaga Bulldogs and Illinois Fighting Illini is expected.

Gonzaga Bulldogs

This is a team that’s currently ranked number one when it comes to offensive efficiency, plus they have depth, balance, and they’re incredibly fast.

They also count with two future NBA draft lottery picks in Corey Kispert and Jalen Suggs.

If they win it all, they will become the first undefeated national champion since Indiana did it back in 1976.

Illinois Fighting Illini

Although Gonzaga is the best offensive team, they are ranked 10 in defensive efficiency, and Illinois does count with the necessary defensive fortitude to play an epic game vs Gonzaga.

The problem with the Bulldogs is that experts are doubting their capacity to win six more straight to make history.

Illinois has been playing phenomenally, and they don’t have such load on their shoulders, plus the school is after their first national title in history, and that gives them the extra that’s needed to do outstanding things.
