What is the team scoring record in the history of the ncaa tournament?

Did you know that 11th seeded Loyola-Marymount scored 149 points in a single NCAA Tournament game in 1990?

Modern teams surpass the 100-point barrier once in a while. Since the 2011 tournament, a team has cracked triple digits just eight times. Plus, six of those performances happened in the first or second round against either a No. 15 or 16 seed.

Several decades ago, it was a regular sight. And no team has ever tested a scoreboard like Loyola-Marymount.

During the 1990 tournament, the 11th-seeded Lions shattered the previous record of 127 with 149 points to beat No. 3 seed Michigan. The wildest part is Loyola racked up that number in regulation; St. Joe's needed four overtimes to hit 127 in 1961.

The second-highest total belongs to UNLV, which scored 131 exactly one week later to eliminate Loyola from the 1990 tourney.
