Schedule for Team Missouri
  • Round 1: Delaware (W 260-255 - after a 195-85 first half in favor of Missouri, Delaware had a strong second half and took the lead 255-240 after tossup 19, but Alex got tossup 20 and the team scored 10 on the bonus to pull off the win)
  • Round 2: Pennsylvania B (W 285-110)
  • Round 3: Ohio B (W 260-155)
  • Round 4: Kentucky (W 215-170 - close game the entire time, with 7 lead changes. The team's largest lead was 110-55 after 7 and largest deficit was 100-145 after 11)
  • Round 5: Oklahoma (W 275-170)
  • Round 6: Pennsylvania A (L 80-245 - tied after 4, but finished the first half only with 2 negs. The team got 3 of the first 4 tossups to close the gap to 80-120, but couldn't score anything after that.)
  • Round 7: New York (L 215-230 - led 80 to -5 after 3, but NY came back to lead 125-120 at the half. After a couple of lead changes, New York had the largest lead of the second half at 230-180 after 17, but Missouri couldn't score enough in the final 3 cycles to close the gap.)
  • Round 8: Georgia A (L 205-300 - the team trailed 225-35 at the half; 7 tossups and associated bonuses in the second half weren't enough to catch up)
  • Round 9: Maryland (W 280-125)
  • Round 10: Georgia B (L 150-290 - the team took an early 60-0 lead after 2, but could only pull 4 more tossups the rest of the game)
  • Round 11: California (L 180-340 - the team never led; they pulled as close as 100-115 after 8 but could not keep up after that)
  • Round 12: Illinois (L 110-365 - Joe answered the first tossup correctly to take the lead, but it was mostly Illinois after that, with Missouri correctly answering only 4 more tossups after that.)
  • Round 13: Ohio A (L 190-305 - it was a competitive game most of the way. In the first half, Missouri took the lead 3 times and forced a tie another, and Ohio took the lead 4 times in the first half to lead 135-105 at the half. Ohio increased their lead to 230-135 after 15, Missouri closed the gap to 225-195 after 17, but then Ohio got the last 3 tossups to secure the win)

  • Round 14: bye
  • Round 15: Alabama (W 330-35 - very slow first half for both teams with 4 dead tossups in first 7 questions. Missouri's lead was only 60-45 after 9, but the team converted the remaining 11 tossups)

Post Re: 2016 HSAPQ NASAT
Team Missouri finished Saturday at 6-7 - I edited the post above with results.

The team has a bye in the first round tomorrow, then finishes the round robin in round 15 against Alabama (currently 2-10). This game will occur around 9:10 AM Eastern time.

If Missouri wins that game, we'll finish the round robin 7-7. Depending on the results of the other games, a 4 or 5 way tie for 6th is possible. With a loss, the team falls to somewhere between 9th and 11th based on the results of Georgia B, Maryland, and Kentucky's games.

Post Re: 2016 HSAPQ NASAT
The team finished 7-7 in the tournament, tying for ninth place with Kentucky. We had two wins and a 15 point loss to the 8-6 teams that finished tied for sixth. Stats are here.

With 39.29 points per game, Parth was the #5 tournament all-star! Joe, Alex, and Tim greatly complemented Parth's team-leading performance, with many games featuring all four each answering at least one tossup correctly and good team collaboration on bonuses.

Congratulations to the team on their performance in the toughest high school tournament of the year!

Thanks to how early on Sunday the tournament ended, it sure was nice to return to KC around sunset rather than hours after dark or on Monday!
