Also of note: Vincenzo Joseph won by technical fall in SF over Lehigh's Wolf...Vincenzo was unable to wrestle in the dual meet due to injury while Wolf won a major decision over Penn State's backup 149 # sub ... a likely swing of 9 team points...
... in the finals at 174 # Mark Hall won a stifling shutout over Lehigh's Kutler, 4-0, including more than 2 1/2 minutes of riding time advantage...

197 sure got interesting now with 3 in the mix. Also, wondering how bad Cortez' injury was (it looked pretty bad as they had to carry him off). Perhap's Lee's redshirt gets pulled?

... no official report on the extent of Cortez's injury, but I agree it did appear serious...

First and foremost Congrats to the folks on The PSU "Train"...Six Champions at any tournament will bring in the New Year with cheers!!!

>>> Lehigh was down from the start with Mr. Parker suffering a first round loss...Finishing 95 points behind had to hurt after their dual performance

>>> UNI wrestled tough and earned respect

>>> Mr. Lee was game on and losing in the finals will only make him better...What is a redshirt

>>> 149-184 returning NCAA Champions...2018 Scuffle Champions as well

>>> Mr. Nevills got schooled and will learn...#1 seeds need to know folks will come

>>> Mr. Cassar can get it done but either attitude or the weight cut makes him a risk

>>> Mr. Rasheed should start at 197 and Mr. Cassar should put the weight back on and see where he stands at HWT

P.S. The B1G schedule now with Michigan up next...We'll be watching!!!
