College Basketball Prediction:
The No. 3 seed Gonzaga have won their last eight games and are averaging 83.1 points per game, allowing 61.2. The No.1 seed North Carolina Tar Heels have won seven of their last eight games and are averaging 84.8 points per game, allowing 70.7 points.

The Tar Heels are making their second consecutive national championship game after losing to the Villanova Wildcats last year on a game-winning shot at the buzzer.

North Carolina has size and quickness, but Gonzaga’s defense has been terrific. North Carolina lost last year’s final and I believe the Tar Heels will be burnt again in the National Championship game. Expect to see a battle down to the final minutes.

Prediction: Gonzaga 80, South Carolina 77
