Loyola Marymount Scored 149 Points In An NCAA Tournament Game, The Most Ever

Bo Kimble‘s 1989-90 Loyola Marymount Lions scored the most points ever in a single NCAA Tournament game, 149.

They were underdogs, too – an 11-seed up against three-seeded Michigan. It was just 14 days after the death of Hank Gathers, Kimble’s teammate and best friend.

The Lions set another record that game: most three-pointers with 21.
