NDT 2011 Doubles: Oklahoma GW v Emporia WW

Posted in College, elimination round, Video with tags , , , , on April 5, 2011 by Scott Odekirk

This was one of the best debates I saw all year and I felt honored to judge it. Thanks to all the participants, LaToya Williams-Green & Ryan Wash for Emporia and R.J. Giglio & Nick Watts for Oklahoma. I have judged both of these teams a ton throughout the course of their careers and I have to say that they do things the right way. Enjoy. This round is a must see. I was particularly blown away by the 2nc. The panel would decide this debate in favor of Oklahoma on a 4-1.
