For The Win

Last season, sports fans were robbed of the men’s NCAA Tournament after the coronavirus pandemic led to a global shutdown of college and professional sports.

Well, fast forward just over a year — and though the pandemic is still ongoing — March Madness made its return. As did the post-tournament tradition of “One Shining Moment.”

Monday’s national title game between No. 1 seeds Baylor and then-undefeated Gonzaga ended in a dominant showing from Baylor as the Bears captured the program’s first championship, 86-70.

And after the confetti fell from the rafters at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Baylor’s win was capped off by the first “One Shining Moment” in two years. Watch and enjoy:

It’s good to have that back. Plus, it’s a decided improvement from the sad, fan-made videos in 2020.
