201 Points in a College Basketball Game

That's right, 201 points! The Lincoln University Lions, a Division III school in Pennsylvania, set NCAA D III records for most points in a game and a half (104 points) in their 201-78 victory over Ohio State-Marion. The Lions are the #11 ranked team in D III and were led by guard Sam Wylie who knocked down 21 three-pointers (also a D III record) on his way to 69 points.

Lincoln's margin of victory was also an NCAA record. Troy, then in Division II, holds the all-time NCAA single-game scoring record with 258 points vs. DeVry, Ga. in 1992.

Ohio State-Marion competes in the non-NCAA Ohio Regional Campus Conference, a drop down even for a D III school. I'd be a lot more impressed with Lincoln's record if they had put those numbers up on a team in their same classification.
