This weekend at the Northwestern college tournament I had the opportunity to judge a great debate between Emporia (Ryan Wash and LaToya Williams-Green) and Kansas (Sean Kennedy and [deleted]) in the doubles. The panel was also awesome (me, Teddy Albiniak, and Gabe Murillo) so I made sure to tape the decisions. Thanks to all the participants, enjoy!
