What player scored the most points in a NCAA championship basketball game?
I believe the answer is Bill Walton, who scored 44 points for UCLA in a Championship game in 1973 or 1974.
The term bench points in basketball refers to how many points the non-starting players of a team score in a game. They are called bench points, because the player begins the game sitting on the bench, as opposed to on the court. These points do not count more or less than the points scored by starters.
