The top-seeded Baylor Bears defeated the Houston Cougars 78-59 in the semifinal round of the NCAA March Madness tournament on Saturday night to advance to the championship game for the first time since 1948.
Baylor breezed through its first Final Four appearance since 1950 and will head into the championship game where the Bears will take on the winner of the Gonzaga-UCLA semifinal game.
Baylor men’s basketball team has never won a national championship.
Baylor leads Houston by 25 points at halftime.
That is the 4th-largest lead at halftime of a Final Four game all-time and the largest since Kansas (+29) vs Marquette in 2003.
