For detailed information about question writing guidelines and whatnot, please view the following thread:

Stats

Post by jazzerpoet »

Stats are now online on our Team website:

<http://www.orgs.utulsa.edu/academicbowl/tournaments.htm>

In short, four teams competed in GARBAGE Southwest, two from Oklahoma, one of OSU Alums, and one house team. In the end, the house team (Alcoholics Synonymous) won the tournament with a 7-2 record. It should be noted that all of the teams averaged at least 215 PPG and 18 PPB.

I really enjoyed the set, with the exception of a few repeats. But overall, this is what a regular trash tournament should be like. I hope that GARBAGE becomes a mainstay of the circuit in the future. I, for one, would be willing to help out in editing in the future.

Thanks.
