Crazy NCAA Tournament Moments – The 1990 LMU Lions – Michigan Wolverines Game

The 1989-1990 LMU (Loyola Marymount University) Lions were one of my favorite teams to watch. Their 1990 NCAA Tournament game against the Michigan Wolverines was a wild one. This game set NCAA college basketball records for the most points by one team in an NCAA Tournament game and the most combined points in an NCAA Tournament game. Thank you so much for your interest in this 90s college basketball video.

1990 NCAA Tournament – #11 LMU vs. #3 Michigan

Enjoy this video.  The Michigan Wolverines were the defending National Champions.  Although they lost Glen Rice after the 1989 season, Michigan still had several NBA players on its roster.  Meanwhile, the 1989-1990 LMU Lions star Hank Gathers, tragically passed away during the regular season.  Despite the tragedy, LMU was able to average 122.4 points a game.  This was the highest scoring NCAA tournament game ever.  Enjoy this video, one of my favorites.
