Just below is a retrospective of last year's tournament, June 4, 2016...
* 16 First Round Games produce 16 winner's bracket teams and 16 loser's bracket teams.
* A second round game on the loser's side will eliminate 8 teams, while 8 more will play on until they lose a second game.
* Eventually, a loser's bracket champion will advance to the Championship Round, with one loss.
* On the winner's side, 8 second round games will send 4 teams to the loser's bracket, while 4 teams will continue on, undefeated.
* Eventually, a winner's bracket champ will advance to the Championship Round, still undefeated.
* The loser's bracket champ must beat the winner's bracket champ twice to be deemed Champion, while the winner's bracket champ need only win once in order to take home the big trophy.
* There are no refs.
* There is no 'three-point shot.'
* Players call their own fouls.

* Games are a maximum of 18 minutes long.
* On all changes of possession, the ball must be cleared beyond the foul line extended.
* It's "winner out."
* There is no stalling.
