Highest Totals In College Basketball History

With several rule changes to increase scoring taking hold in college basketball, we are seeing totals slowly crawling higher and higher. With that in mind, we decided to look at the highest closing totals in our NCAAB database, which dates back to 2005.

Since 2005, there have been 10 college basketball games that closed at 181.0 or higher with the OVER/UNDER being split 5-5. Of those 10 games, six came after the introduction of the 30-second shot clock with the OVER going 4-2.

The Horizon League was home to the massive totals during the 2015-16 season, as Oakland, Detroit and Wisc-Green Bay were involved in five of the six games that had a closing total of 181.0 or higher last year.
