The worst college basketball game was so historically awful, a ranked team scored just 24 points

      Before the advent of the shot clock (early 80s), the University of Georgia was involved in an even lower scoring game. However, it wasn't because of poor shooting. It was because the opponent (I don't remember exactly; I want to say it was NC State at that time as well) used the "Four Corners" deliberate stalling technique throughout the game (again, there was no shot clock).
      UGA won by a final score of 26-20.
      UGA's Dominique Wilkins (the future Hall of Famer and the reason for the opponent's use of the Four Corners) was held to 8 points. That low total cost him sole ownership of the SEC scoring title that year; he finished tied with Jeff Malone of Mississippi State (the future Utah Jazz player).

          N.C. State A.D. (Yow) publicly voiced her displeasure in not making the NCAA tourney. I knew after seeing highlights(or lowlights) of this game that their fate was sealed unless they won the conference championship

                My dad comes to visit me in Florida a few times a year. He's knowlegable about all the pro leagues, but doesn't follow college sports at all. If there's a college game on at the bar, he'll always ask the common, "are these teams any good?" And, "which players are the best here?" Right after I watched this video I realized he was down here during this week. Thankfully we never watched this game. I really don't need to reinforce the point that he raised a dumbass! 🤣🤣

                    I'm an NC State student and was debating on either going to this game... or staying behind to study...

                    ...So glad I stayed behind

                        Crazily enough, I give these two teams credit. They didn't play exciting basketball (nowhere near it), they played logical basketball. Nothing but prime, clamp down defence.

                            LMAO! How bad is scoring 24 points in a basketball game? The Kansas City Chiefs scored more points in *every* game they played during that *very same* season (the '18-'19 regular season *and* playoffs)! Seriously, here are the total points they scored in all 18 games (and how many points more or less than 24 it was, + being more, - being less):

                            Week 1 at Chargers....... 38 (+14)
                            Week 2 at Steelers.........42 (+18)
                            Week 3 vs 49ers.............38 (+14)
                            Week 4 at Broncos........27 (+3)
                            Week 5 vs Jaguars........30 (+6)
                            Week 6 at Patriots........40 (+16)
                            Week 7 vs Bengals........45 (+21)
                            Week 8 vs Broncos.......30 (+6)
                            Week 9 at Browns.........37 (+13)
                            Week 10 vs Cardinals...26 (+2)
                            Week 11 at Rams..........51 (+27, yikes!)
                            Week 13 at Raiders.......40 (+16)
                            Week 14 vs Ravens.......27 (+3)
                            Week 15 vs Chargers....28 (+4)
                            Week 16 at Seahawks...31 (+7)
                            Week 17 vs Raiders.......35 (+11)

                            Playoff Divisional Round vs Colts....... 31 (+7)
                            AFC Championship vs Patriots............31 (+7)

                            Notice there are *no* minuses! *That* is how bad the NC State offense was! They were so bad, an entire professional football team, playing against professional football defenses, was able to outscore them in *every* single game they played in an *entire* season!

                            I did not know that was even possible! Like, how can you score so few points in a basketball game that a football team fails to score less than you in *all* 18 games it plays during that same season? Even most of the lowest basketball scores I've seen are *at least* >40 points, and not only could NC State not muster *that,* but couldn't even muster *15 points less* than that in an entire 40 minute game. Abysmal!

                                            It’s very coincidental that this game took place a day before Super Bowl LIII, which was just as bad.

                                                I was in attendance for a MAC tournament game that was almost this bad... by the end of the game, we were just roasting both teams for sucking. This takes the cake by virtue of ranked teams. 24 points, that's impressive. You couldn't even do that by trying.
