  • Only one team scored over 100 points in an NCAA title game in the 1990’s. Who were they? UNLV. UNLV Runnin’ Rebels beat Duke by 30 points (103-73) in 1990 for their first NCAA title.
  • What team won the NCAA title in their first Final Four appearance in 1999? Connecticut.  Surprisingly, UConn never made it to the Final Four until 1999, when they defeated Duke for the title.
  •  Who holds the record for most points scored in one tournament in the 20th Century?  Glen Rice. In 1989 Glen Rice scored 184 points in 6 games, including 27 three pointers.
