I am assuming that what you are really looking for is the magic answer to type into the "tie-breaker" box of your bracket. Usually a tournament bracket asks players to predict the final score of the championship game as a tie breaker.
By taking the final scores since 1939 and adding the two scores together (winner plus loser) and then performing statistical analysis on that data, we get a simple mean score of 136.67, and within a 99% confidence interval, the mean is between 128 and 145.
That means that any number between 128 and 145 (both scores added together) is a good answer to the box. After that it's mostly luck. Good luck!
The three-point line was added in the 1986-1987 season, so if we eliminate the scores from before 1986, then the average shifts to between 145 and 155 with a confidence interval of 90%.
The average total points scored in final division 1 NCAA men's basketball is between 128 and 145. This is the combined score of both teams.
The SAT is irrelevant to basketball
The final score of the final game in the 2011 NCAA championship game was:Connecticut 53 Butler 41
usually 50 to 99
The Pre-Scholastic Aptitude Test score ranges from 60 to 240. The average final PSAT score for 10th grade is about 125. The average PSAT score for 11th grade is roughly 140. The overall average in 2014 was 142.
The Answer is 46
