How much do college teams receive in 'prize money' for attending and or winning in the NCAA tournament?

The NCAA tournament distributes money to conferences based upon how many games the member teams play in the tournament. Then the conference divides that money equally among the member teams. For participation in the tournament the NCAA gives teams a travel allowance for each game that they play, but the real money comes from their share of the conference money. For example the MVC received $2.95 million based upon its success between 2000-2005, whereas the Big 12 received $14.4 million. Teams that make it to the first round this year and lose receive $82,000 in travel money, and they receive more if they advance.

Why are the rankings of basketball teams in the NCAA tournament called seeds?

One of the meaning of the word seed, when it comes to sports, is 'a ranking of teams or players for a specific purpose'. So, as far as sports are concerned, the words seed and rank are synonymous.

The use of "seed" or "seeding" was common in tennis in the late 1800s. It was used to describe the act of spreading or "seeding" the best players throughout the tournament in order to keep the best players from meeting/playing early on. The "seeded" players were those of higher skill and thus the term became synonymous with ranking.

The term is also used in terms of "seeding" a deck of cards; spreading the most desirable cards throughout a deck so as to not have them all appear at once.

What is the average final score for the final Division 1 NCAA mens basketball game?

I am assuming that what you are really looking for is the magic answer to type into the "tie-breaker" box of your bracket. Usually a tournament bracket asks players to predict the final score of the championship game as a tie breaker.

By taking the final scores since 1939 and adding the two scores together (winner plus loser) and then performing statistical analysis on that data, we get a simple mean score of 136.67, and within a 99% confidence interval, the mean is between 128 and 145.

That means that any number between 128 and 145 (both scores added together) is a good answer to the box. After that it's mostly luck. Good luck!

The three-point line was added in the 1986-1987 season, so if we eliminate the scores from before 1986, then the average shifts to between 145 and 155 with a confidence interval of 90%.
