Charter B defeated Charter A in the finals 315-220, and Oakland Mills defeated Livingston A to take third, by a score of 330-320. Congratulations to these teams, and thanks to everyone for coming out! Stats will be up sometime in the near future.

This was all in all a good tournament, from all of the teams that we played and the great effort put on by the Phoenixville team in organizing it to the great mexican place that totally popped up out of the blue after the like 10 pizza restaurants and the surprisingly pleasant drive up. Thanks for hosting this.

Yeah, I enjoyed bringing our "unorthodox, unpredictable, unstoppable" playing style to Pennsylvania. I thought that, although it may have went on too long, it was, overall, a well run tournament. I hope this isn't the last PhAQT!
