Thank you all for attending the tournament! It was a great time and a memorable experience for my first time TDing. Congrats to UMD A for winning a hard-fought tournament and UMD B for getting second. Thank you all once again!

Leland, thank you for running the tournament! It was a commendable effort for a first time TD and I enjoyed the event, although the rooms in my morning bracket ran very slowly and the pace became grueling at times. For future events, I would suggest room-balancing brackets (i.e. distributing games in different morning brackets equally among different sets of rooms) so that no bracket/room runs too far behind the others.

Belatedly agreeing with what Weijia said; JHU did a great job!

As a small note, it looks like the finals game is duplicated in the stats.
