When is the NCAA March Madness Final?

Date: Monday, April 5

Time: 9:20 p.m. ET | 6:20 p.m. PT

Arena: Lucas Oil Stadium

The game is scheduled to tip-off at 9:20 PM ET on Monday and the broadcast team comprises Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Grant Hill, Bill Raftery (analysts), Tracy Wolfson (reporter), and Gene Steratore (rules analyst). 

But the major question on one’s mind would be about the TV broadcast and streaming. Of course, the March Madness final will be relayed live on television as well as on the internet. Here are the details about TV and streaming: 

Broadcast: CBS 

Live Stream: March Madness Live

Only CBS will televise the live relay of the 2021 NCAA March Madness Final. However, one can also watch the game online through the NCAA’s official website. 

Gonzaga and Baylor meet for the first time this season

The Gonzaga Bulldogs and the Baylor Bears have been the two best teams this season. While one has remained unbeaten, the other has been utterly destructive en route to the final. However, it is interesting to know that these two teams never met in the regular season. 

Gonzaga and Baylor had a game scheduled on December 4, but COVID-19 health protocols ultimately led to the fixture’s cancelation. So there’s no head-to-head history between these two, heading into the March Madness final.

Right now, the odds are in favor of the Gonzaga Bulldogs since they are 31-0. While they faced a tough test in the Final Four, that was exactly the required preparation for the championship game. 

Which team are you backing to win it all? Both teams have never won the NCAA tournament before, so who will emerge as maiden champions on Monday?
