After the final buzzer rang, the Baylor Bears defeated the Gonzaga Bulldogs in convincing fashion 86-70. Many had predicted Gonzaga to win it all, but I didn’t pick Gonzaga.

I instead went with the underdog. On Sunday, the Bears were a 4 1/2-point underdog. 16.1 percent of entries predicted a No. 1 seed Gonzaga vs. No. 1 Baylor matchup, and of those brackets 71.6 percent picked the Bulldogs to win it all, according to ESPN’s tournament challenge.
