On December 14, 2005 the Princeton Tigers lost to the Monmouth Hawks. The final score was Monmouth 41 - Princeton 21, and it set a record for the lowest scoring college basketball game in the modern era. (Source:www.sportsrecords.us/lowest-scoring-college-basketball-game) I remember another score that is very less than 41 - 21. In 1970 or 71 a game finished 7 - 4. ( What is intended for modern era?) I don't remember the teams but they were small college teams. If modern era is after 1970, then Tennessee vs Temple 11 - 6 on December 15, 1973 could qualify for second lowest.

If you hit 14 reds and 14 yellows your score would be 42. There is now only 1 red left and hence there is 35 left on the table and thus a winning score. In theory though, the opponent can carry on playing hoping to get a snooker. So the lowest score in which it is impossible to do this would be 15 reds potted with no color plus the colors up to the pink which is 21 and thus 36 is the very lowest possible score to win without the opponent being able to win in any circumstance.
