My hip-hop side event tournament, FIGHT THE POWER, will likely run during lunch, in a shoot-out format. Message me at laurence.li@yale.edu if you are interested!

For what ended up for us being a 14 game tournament, this ran super well, so thanks to Yale for hustling along. Congrats to ourselves for clutching it out into the final, and then congrats to MIT for smacking our asses back to Cambridge.

For what it's worth, I ended up liking the set a lot, so call some of the peripheral criticism a little premature.

Thank you to all the teams who came on Saturday and congratulations to MIT A, who won a one-game final against Harvard A to win the tournament. Stats are now up at http://www.hsquizbowl.org/db/tournament ... all_games/.

So this is way after the fact, but I just noticed that Amherst is recorded as having 0 PPB in our Round 4 game against Brown B. We got 325 points, not... 135. Also, it seems like you guys double-entered our game against Wesleyan - we only played then once, and we forfeited our 10th game (it seems like you just inputted the stats from our game against House in the second time). Could we get that fixed?
