— NCAA Wrestling (@ncaawrestling) March 11, 2019 The NCAA record for points in a tournament is 170, that coming in 1997, Dan Gable’s last year as head coach at Iowa. Oklahoma State scored 153 points in 2005 with five individual champions. Does PSU have six NCAA champs? Here are the candidates: Nick Lee (27-2), Jason Nolf (26-0), Vincenzo Joseph (23-1), Mark Hall (26-0). Shakur Rasheed (19-0), Bo Nickal (25-0), and Anthony Cassar (25-1). Nolf, Joseph, Hall, and Nickal have already claimed seven titles over the last three seasons. No team has ever had six individual NCAA champions at an NCAA Tournament. That is what the field is up against. WATCH: Will Kollin Moore and Patrick Brucki challenge Bo Nickal at 197? 4 – IOWA: Alex Marinelli moved to 23-0 with a win over PSU’s Joseph in the Big Ten final at 165 pounds last weekend, leading the Hawkeyes to a third place finish overall. Marinelli, just a sophomore, has been strong all season and heads to Pittsburgh as the probable top seed. The 2018 NCAA champion Spencer Lee (18-3 at 125) was pinned by OSU’s Piccininni and fell to Northwestern’s Sebastian Rivera in the Big Ten final. Head coach Tom Brands has a solid lineup with the volatile Austin DeSanto (18-4 at 133), Kaleb Young (20-5 at 157), Cash Wilcke (21-6 at 184), and Jacob Warner (17-4 at 197) all fighting for the podium. Heavyweight Sam Stoll, who started the year ranked No. 1, will look for an at-large bid to Pittsburgh with a 9-5 record. Winners of 23 NCAA titles, Iowa will have to wrestle well above its seeds to raise the trophy. Iowa’s Spencer Lee will get pushed to retain his title at 125 5 – MISSOURI: Are the Tigers ready to make a run? Putting men in the finals is required, and head coach Brian Smith has bonus-point machine Jaydin Eierman (23-3 at 141) and three-time All-American Daniel Lewis (24-1 at 174) to lead a team that won an eighth straight Mid-American Conference title last weekend. For MU to challenge, or to finish inside the top five, senior John Erneste (18-4 at 133) and rookie Brock Mauller (29-2 at 149) will have to have a strong weekend at nationals. MU has finished sixth, fifth, and sixth at the last three national meets.
