Today’s “there’s no tomorrow” comic is overly dramatic, but it certainly proves a point.
College basketball fans can easily envision Gonzaga’s coach Mark Few and North Carolina’s coach Roy Williams standing in their respective teams’ locker rooms in front of a large calendar pointing to tomorrow’s April 4th date.
They can even hear both successful basketball coaches plead with their teams to recognize the importance of tonight’s game.
In the case of tonight’s NCAA men’s national basketball tournament, there’s really “no tomorrow” as the old sports cliche goes for either the Gonzaga Bulldogs or the favored North Carolina Tar Heels.
Tonight’s April 3rd NCAA title game marks the end of the season for both squads.
It’s also the culmination of one of the most exciting March Madness tournaments in recent memory.
As of tomorrow April 4th, no other opportunity exists for either team to bring home the NCAA championship trophy.
#1 Seeds Gonzaga & North Carolina Face Off
In addition, this evening’s exciting championship game showdown pits a #1 seed (Gonzaga) against another #1 seed (North Carolina) and demonstrates the excellence of two of college basketball’s best teams.
Until tonight’s 9:19pm EST tip-off, college basketball fans will speculate if either Gonzaga or North Carolina can outlast its opponent again as they did in their previous outings.
Other fans will ponder whether Gonzaga’s talented big men will dominate the inside as they did against their five previous opponents.
Whoever wins, the winning team will certainly have earned the coveted hardware. Each team has deserved to get to this stage in the tournament.
All hoops fans know about North Carolina’s remarkable run against a stacked field of ACC Conference opponents.
And, knowledgeable basketball junkies have said for years that the Zags have shed their Mid Major label years ago.
A Literal & Figurative “No Tomorrow” Game
There may literally and figuratively be “no tomorrow” after tonight as far as the NCAA tournament is concerned.
However, whoever wins this evening, both teams can celebrate tomorrow and in the years to come about their incredible success in this year’s March Madness.
Here’s hoping the madness continues for just one more night!
