The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance sponsored three teams in the National All-Star Academic Tournament (NASAT) on June 22-23 on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, KY. The teams were coached by Jason Loy, David Dennis, and Kyle Hill.
The 23 team field was divided into three pools of 7 or 8 teams that each played a round robin on Saturday morning. Based on preliminary record, the top four teams in each pool advanced to the championship crossover pool on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning to determine the top twelve, while the remaining teams advanced to the consolation crossover pool to play for thirteenth through twenty-third place.
Following the preliminary rounds, Missouri A was tied for third in the pool at 3-3 with Kentucky and Pennsylvania Blue. With only two spots available in the top pool, a two-stage tiebreaker was played on half-packets. With the two highest point averages, Missouri A and Kentucky played the first half game, which Kentucky won 115-105 (again in overtime) to earn a spot in the top pool. Missouri A then played Pennsylvania Blue in the second half game, which Pennsylvania won 140-125 to send Missouri A to the consolation pool.
