Drew Parkhill : Apr 6, 2021  CBN News

"I'm not trying to preach a prosperity Gospel, but um, our Lord and Savior, I say it all the time, you know, He gets us through everything ... He's with us wherever we go, and He just sustained us, He brought us together, He brought the team together." -Jared Butler

The private Christian university easily beat previously undefeated Gonzaga on Monday night 86 to 70.

The Baylor team thanked God in prayer in a circle on the court after the game.

The Bears' Jared Butler was named the Final Four most outstanding player. He gave thanks to the Lord after the game.

"I'm not trying to preach a prosperity Gospel, but um, our Lord and Savior, I say it all the time, you know, He gets us through everything," Butler said. "Jesus Christ, man, He's the truth, and He was with us tonight, He's with us all season, He's with us wherever we go, and He just sustained us, He brought us together, He brought the team together."

Baylor Coach Scott Drew also honored the hard work of his players saying, "Our team has been special. Last two years, winningest team in the Power Five. We've been really, really good, and they're even better people."

Baylor is a Christian university, and Drew has been guided by his own Christian faith, having accepted Christ at a young age.

The Baylor program was a mess when Drew took over in 2003. But he built it back up using a culture called "JOY", which stands for "Jesus, Others, Yourself".

"We're so blessed to have unbelievable upperclassmen and leadership. But we play with a culture of joy," Coach Drew said after the big win. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
