This tournament occurred! Stats for it can be found at this link, and will be cleaned up so that playoffs reflect brackets soon. We'll also be looking to post combined stats within the next couple of days.

Penn A cleared the field by two games to take the tournament outright. Duke and Johns Hopkins A finished with 2 losses each in the top bracket, and elected not to play a 2nd place game, tying them in 2nd place. Congratulations to the winners, and we hope that you enjoyed the tournament!

On a separate note, Ophir stats should be up soon if you join the discussion forum for the tournament. Despite slight doubts about using newfangled technology, the stats sheet was incredibly useful and convenient, and I'm very thankful for Ophir for putting it together in such a user-friendly way.
