Lowest scoring tournament game:
87 points (?)--(3)Kansas 49, (14)Ohio 38 (1985). I'm not 100% sure on this one. I looked and looked for a list of lowest scoring games in recent tournament history and I came up empty. If anyone is aware of a lower scoring game from 1985 to 2018 in the NCAAT by all means post it.

UConn is the only school to have fielded men's and women's National Championship teams in the same year…and they've done it twice (2004 and 2014).
