Proud of this team for fighting through every obstacle that came its way this season to reach the #FinalFour.— Houston Men's Hoops 🏀 🐾 (@UHCougarMBK) April 3, 2021
Houston, we felt your support this entire year and can't wait to see you at the Fertitta Center next season.

Here's how the game went:
Jared Butler didn't score in the second half, but the second-ranked Bears didn't need any more points from their All-American guard after he scored 17 to help them take a 25-point halftime lead in a 78-59 victory over Houston.
Gonzaga, the tournament's No. 1 overall seed, plays 11th-seeded UCLA in the late game.
It's the second trip to the championship game for Baylor. The other was in 1948, when the Bears lost to Kentucky 58-42. This is Baylor's first trip to the Final Four since 1950, when only eight teams were in the tournament.
