I'm suprised Banneker expressed interest, their team has been essentially dead ever since their coach left two years ago.

No, we're still waiting to hear about a third team from Seton Hall, and whether Aiken is coming. I expect to post the final field tomorrow afternoon.

Congratulations to State College who whooped us in the finals pretty badly. The tournament directors did a very good job of getting the tournament done on time too. The questions were generally very well written, although I did notice a few repeats and some odd distributions.

Playoff scores weren't regularly kept, and even the scores for the ones that I moderated have fallen out of my memory, so I'm afraid not.
