Baylor won its first NCAA men's basketball title in dominant fashion Monday, overwhelming Gonzaga from the opening tip en route to an 86-70 victory in the national championship game.

Baylor, being in Texas, fittingly added some football flair to its celebration. Fans gathered for a watch party at McLane Stadium, home of Baylor's football team. Judging by the official halftime video shared by Baylor, there was an effort toward mask wearing, if not so much social distancing.
