Tips For Winning Time Machine 3/10/17

The March 10, 2017 Time Machine contest features the following question:

How many total points will be scored in the Mens NCAA Basketball championship on April 3rd, 2017?

If you have access to an actual time machine, you can of course simply travel to April 3rd and retrieve the answer.  If you don’t have access to a time machine, it will be helpful to familiarize yourself with United States NCAA basketball and the massively-popular, end-of-season national championship tournament known as “March Madness.” Fun Fact: It’s estimated that more than 60 million people will fill out a tournament bracket to predict the winner this year!screenshot_2475

Start by reviewing this Wikipedia article.

Next, review history!  This page provides the final score of all the NCAA championship games since 1939.

Of course, every year is different—different teams, different styles of offense, different coaches.

Good luck!
