The opening round of BUNN’s Tournament of the Beverages had a little bit of everything, from close contests to blowouts as the tournament moves on to the Elite 8®.
The Cold Bracket got off to an exciting start as Orange Juice squeezed past Lemonade, 90-83, and Sweet Iced Tea nipped Regular Iced Tea, 88-85, in the closest match-up of the opening round. The bottom half of the cold bracket provided a pair of blowouts with Iced Latte rolling past Iced Coffee, 101-70, and Cherry Slushy freezing out Mocha Slushy, 108-64.
The Hot Bracket didn’t have as many close calls as Hot Chocolate defeated Hot Tea and Cappuccino topped Latte with identical 102-71 scores. Regular Coffee scored the biggest victory of the opening round, crushing Americano, 135-38 while trifecta Coffee also advanced with a 92-80 triumph over Espresso.
As the tournament moves to the Elite 8, Orange Juice will face Sweet Iced Tea in one of the Cold Bracket semifinals while Iced Latte will square off against Cherry Slushy in the other.
The Hot Bracket will have Hot Chocolate meeting Cappuccino and Regular Coffee taking on trifecta Coffee.
Stay tuned for the updated results. The Final Four will be announced Monday.
