I was initially surprised that the women's final only had about 2.3x as many turns as the men's final, because it was one of the ugliest games I've seen at the elite level. Then I normalized for number of points and saw that they had over 3x as many turns per point, which makes more sense.

Poor play by both offenses, but I thought Brute Squad gave away turns on drops more often. Their D kept getting them the disc back, but they could never hold onto it.
