UTD is HOT!!

"It was the most lopsided Final Four victory in the history of the event," said University of Texas-Dallas Chess Program Director Jim Stallings. "Normally, only a half-point or 1 point separates the top two teams. This time UTD scored more than the 2nd and 3rd teams combined."

Moreover, UTD has now surpassed Joe Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak, having gone undefeated through 48 games of December's Pan American Intercollegiate Championship and through all 12 games of the Final Four.

And you thought Florida, Ohio State, UCLA and Georgetown were playing in the Final Four.

Here are the final standings:

University of Texas-Dallas 10.5/12
University of Maryland-Baltimore County 5.0/12
Miami Dade College 4.5/12
Duke University 4.0/12

See the final crosstable for more detailed information.

Selected games can be found at the MonRoi site, and you can read a Dallas Morning News article on the tournament as well.

Thank you to Dr. Alexey Root and Jim Stallings of UTD for providing information for this report.
