I saw the stats were up on NAQT. Do you have stats that break out PPB?

On the scoresheets, we didn't distinguish bounceback bonus parts from the traditional bonus parts, so a PPB statistic seems a bit unreliable. There were are few games where some teams scored more on bouncebacks then their own bonuses, for example. I might go back and calculate PPB since a few folks have asked, and I'm curious now, too.

Yes, and all were South Florida teams, except for Montverde, who drove down from Central Florida.
