Tuscumbia Fall Tournament - MS and Elementary - 11/8/14

Post by Jason Loy » Fri Aug 01, 2014 2:00 pm

I am pleased to announce that Tuscumbia High School will be hosting an academic tournament for students in the 8th grade and below on November 8, 2014. We will be running two divisions, one for 7th/8th grade teams from MSHSAA-affiliated schools and one for students in the sixth grade or below. If there is sufficient demand, we will consider opening a third division for 7th/8th grade teams from non-MSHSAA affiliated schools. The hard cap on team size is eight players; we request that you limit teams to six players so as to maximize playing time for all students. As of now, the field cap will be set at 18 teams for the 7th/8th grade division and at 12 teams for the 6th grade and under division. We will consider expanding the cap given sufficient interest and sufficient staff.

This tournament will use NAQT's MS-11 question set for all divisions. Games in the 7th/8th grade division will consist of twenty ten-point tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty-point rebounding bonuses. Games in the 6th grade and under division will consist of sixteen ten-point tossups and up to sixteen three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. I will slightly modify the questions for the latter division to make them more accessible for younger players. All teams will be guaranteed at least seven matches regardless of performance.

Entry fees are as follows:

base fee (first team from each school): $55
second or subsequent teams: $50
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$5 per team
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit three discounts per school): -$5

To register, or if you have any questions whatsoever, please email me at jloy@tuscumbialions.k12.mo.us.

Both divisions of this tournament are now full. We will consider a small expansion of the elementary field if we have the necessary staff and space.

Thanks to all who helped with this tournament.

In the middle school division, West A won a one-game playoff against Hallsville A to win the tournament. Third place went to Washington A. West A defeated West B in a one-game final to decide the elementary division, while Pilot Grove A won the third place game against Hallsville A. Congratulations to all of these teams. Leading scorers were Samuel Lockwood from Hallsville in the middle school division and Ciara Basham from Tuscumbia in the elementary division.
