Baylor Bears Tipped To Lose Title
Because the Baylor Bears have lost vital players – Jared Butler, Davion Mitchell, and MaCio Teague – they are not favorites to retain the championship title. After the season’s final game, top bookmakers made the Gonzaga Bulldogs (Baylor’s opponents in the 2021 finals) the new favorites.
However, the Bears have brought in guard James Akinjo from the Arizona Wildcats. And many also predict that Matthew Mayer, Adam Flagler, and Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua will feature in the new starting line-up. Therefore, we wouldn’t rule out the Bear’s chances of retaining the title just yet.
