In the final round Alec and Stefan were affirmative running their Korematsu affirmative, Chris and Priya were negative.
The negative ran Test Case Specification, Topicality (substantial authority), a Constitutive Criminology kritik, and an EU-China arms sales disadvantage. They ultimately went for topicality in the 2NR.
The teams split the two faculty judges (Kenda Cunningham and Ben Voth) leaving the decision up to the student panel. On an 8-5 decision the negative won.
Congratulations to Priya Parikh and Chris Barnett for winning, and also the other finalists, Alec Wright and Stefan Jiang.
