Houston Fall Tournament

Post by Mr. Pounds » Tue Aug 29, 2017 8:22 am

Hello coaches,

Houston will host a tournament on Saturday, November 11, 2017. We will be using NAQT's IS-170 question set; this set is also being used at the Missouri Fall Academic Tournament, 2018 Gateway Athletic Conference Tournament at Orchard Farm, and the Savannah Invitational at Savannah. If you attend any of those tournaments, you may not attend this one.

Each game will consist of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty-point rebounding bonuses. Each team will be guaranteed at least eight rounds regardless of performance; please plan to stay for the duration of the tournament so we can fulfill this guarantee. Rosters will be limited to eight players per team, with no more than six per team playing in any single game. More logistical details will be available at a later date.

We will initially cap the field at twelve teams and will expand if sufficient staff is available.

Fees are as follows:

base fee (first team from each school): $60
second or subsequent teams: $55
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$5 per team
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit three discounts per school): -$5
