Since the OP did not specify the team in question, I am going to speculate that it was 3 Plz.
3 Plz was stripped of all the placement points they earned while playing E.
By that I mean, they were only awarded 1 participation point for each of those tournaments (except Space City, which was a Super Qualifier so it paid double points).
We thought that was fair.
But 3 Plz was also awarded the applicable Bonus Points for each of those tournaments.
So they had the minimum amount of points they could have at the time they were bumped. It was the same amount of points as if they had gone 0-2 in each of those tournaments.
Since moving to D they placed 13th out of 76 team at Budweiser (another Super Qualifier), tied for 5th at League City N.I.T., tied for 9th at Louisville Slugger, then tied for 13th at the STX State Finals last weekend (another Double Points tournament).
Their current Point Total does not include any "gravy" from their 2 championships and 2 runner-ups while playing in E earlier in the year.
Bonus Points are the key.
They add up quick.
