This tournament happened.

Oxford A went unbeaten through the round robin, with Cambridge A on one loss, forcing an advantaged final. Cambridge A won the first final by five points when Oxford were unable to get more than 10 on the last set of bonuses, taking it to a second final. Although Cambridge led with 4 tossups to go, Oxford A powered the next three to win the game and the tournament by 15 points.

Congratulations to Oxford A, and to high scorers Joey Goldman (Oxford, 58.85 ppg), Evan Lynch (Cambridge, 58.08 ppg), Rowland Sadler (Southampton 48.18 ppg), Issac Brown (Oxford 45.91 ppg) and Max Fitz-James (45.45 ppg).
