Kigongo decided to stay at Michigan State all four years to complete his degree, and there are some interesting circumstances behind his decision.

Kigongo was ranked in the Top 20 nationally as a junior, competing in the top USTA tournaments throughout the country. He was bothered by injuries in college, but he still rose to #2 in the ITA doubles rankings.

I got to chat with Kigongo this summer about all things tennis - but especially his decision to get his college degree.
