KNOXVILLE — Throw out your chalk. It was a wild (and, for two rounds, very windy) day of ultimate in Tennessee at the 2022 Smoky Mountain Invite. #1 UNC lost a game. #2 Georgia lost four! Only one pool went to seed. How to make sense of it all? Not to worry, we’ve got your Wall Street-style takeaways all laid out for you. Just put on a financial bro vest and get ready to buy, sell, and hold some team stocks.

Team Stocks to BUY


Zoodisc took down #1 UNC Darkside today. That alone would be enough to put them in the ‘Buy’ column for an article like this. But it’s the way they won the game that puts an exclamation point on it. While the defense benefitted greatly from nature’s 8th defender (the brutal wind that picked up in the third round of play) and cannot really be assessed accurately because of it, the offense was legitimately good. Orion Cable might be the best player in college already, and the rest of the team around him, including Yucheng Mo and Noel Sierra, plays with purpose and discipline. This team is going to be a problem in Milwaukee.
