Coach Anger on Kamisar:
"I told him that he is frustrating me because I want to redshirt him, and yet he keeps doing better and better and making me lose sleep thinking about what is best for his continued development. I really like his progress. He hits a laser forehand, consistently. But part of the improvement is he's moving better and becoming a little bit more well-rounded."
