Please Note: There is an update to this post below the fold with the semifinal matchups.
Here are the 8 teams to make the quarterfinals. I don’t know what the quarterfinal matchups are, or who they beat in octofinals to get there:
wake forest ch
wayne state fm
michigan state bh
Josh Branson of Northwestern was top speaker and Harvard won the Copeland Award. More updates as the rounds happen.
Update: Found the pairings for quarterfinals. They are:
MSU BH (aff) v. Berkeley BW
Harvard KM v. Wake CH
Dartmouth BM v. Emory GP
Wayne FM v. NWU BC
For non-debaters, the “aff” after MSU’s team means that they were “locked” affirmative because they had already debated each other in the preliminary rounds of the tournament and had gone negative in that round. In the other rounds, affirmative and negative would be determined by a coin flip.
Update #2: Here are the semifinal matchups:
emory gp vs. wake ch
msu bh vs. wayne fm
Still no sign of Liberty University.
