The Non-Trad Showdown is a tradition at the Gonzaga Debate Institute that attempts to show what happens when two “K Teams” face one another. This Showdown is unique in that both sides agreed to provide no disclosure and to flip for sides right before the debate. This Non-Trad Showdown features the Edebate Allstars (Jon Sharp and Mike Hester) on the Aff and Idaho State OD (Scott Odekirk and Izak Dunn) on the Neg.
