The game in the end, really wasn’t that close. The Baylor Bears dominated the Gonzaga 86-70 to capture the first national title in school history.
It doesn’t overshadow the historic season for the Bulldogs, who made their second national title game in school history and were one game away from a perfect season. Corey Kispert, one of the leaders on the team, left it all on the floor for Gonzaga.
In the loss on Monday night, Kispert finished with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block. On the season, he averaged career numbers: 18.6 points per game, five rebounds per game, 1.8 assists per game and 0.9 steals per game, shooting 52.9% from the floor and 44% from three-point range.
Kispert ultimately came back for his senior season after originally declaring for the 2020 NBA Draft. With his stock up and a professional career on the horizon, Kispert had to take in many emotions after the championship loss. During the post game, Kispert said he was “grateful” for everything the team gave him, particularly this year.
