Glad to hear that USC finally played and great job to CalTech! Travis informed me stats would probably be up sometime around Thursday night.

The order of finish was something like:
1) Caltech A (8-0)
2) UCSD B (7-1)
3) Arcadia (6-2)
4) UCSD A (5-3)

And I'm not sure beyond that. By ~50% consensus from the teams, the tournament did not go into playoff rounds and ended after an 8-round RR.
