This tournament happened, and Texas went 9-0 to clear the field with Texas B finishing in second! Thanks to everyone who helped this tournament happen, especially North Texas for signing up last minute to allow the tournament to happen at all, and to Nathaniel and Vik for volunteering as moderators.
