Gonzaga is looking to complete the super rare undefeated perfect season that culminates with an NCAA Championship. It has only been done seven times before and hasn’t happened since Indiana went 32-0 in 1975-76. Mark Few’s squad is just two wins away from joining the illustrious group. Here are two bold reasons on why Gonzaga will win the 2021 NCAA Championship.
1.) Drew Timme
While a lot of the attention gets projected on likely NBA lottery picks Jalen Suggs and Corey Kispert, Drew Timme has made his mark on this NCAA Tournament.
The Gonzaga center had plenty of eyes on him in the Elite Eight, as he entered into a matchup going up against a likely top-three pick in the 2021 NBA Draft in Evan Mobley. Timme dominated the matchup, looking more like a lottery pick than Mobley, scoring 23 points and hauling in four rebounds in Gonzaga’s thumping of USC.
Timme isn’t shy; he has soaked in the spotlight and the celebrations after scoring. Suggs and Kispert have NBA scouts drooling, but Timme very well might be the pulse of the this Gonzaga team.
