Nov. 17, 2014

NEWTON, Iowa — A total of 15 new wrestlers — including three true freshmen — have earned spots in this week’s (Nov. 17) WIN’s individual rankings while Minnesota remains the team to beat in WIN’s Tournament Power Index (TPI), presented by Cliff Keen.

The three rookies, one year removed from high school wrestling, are Oregon State’s Ronnie Bresser (17th at 125 pounds), Northwestern’s Bryce Brill (15th at 157) and Michigan’s Davonte Mahomes (15th at 174).

Bresser (a native of Klamath Falls, Ore.) is coming off a championship at last weekend’s Roadrunner Open in Fresno, Calif., while Brill (Mt. Carmel, Ill.) and Mahomes (Oak Park, Ill.) went undefeated last Saturday at the Eastern Michigan Duals in Ypsilanti, Mich.

Three other nationally-ranked newcomers also won Roadrunner Open titles: Purdue’s 133-pound junior Danny Sabatello (Long Grove, Ill.); Stanford’s 174-pound redshirt freshman Keaton Subjeck (El Dorado Hills, Calif.); and Appalachian State sophomore heavyweight Denzel Dejournette (Winston-Salem, N.C.).

The top nine teams ranked in the Tournament Power Index remain the same as Minnesota still leads the field with 94.5 points, while No. 2 Iowa (79.5), No. 3 Cornell (68), No. 4 Ohio State (66.5) and No. 5 Northwestern (56.5) round out the top five.

Point totals associated with individual rankings are as followed: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12.5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5); 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points will be lower than the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.

WIN will announce a separate Dual Team ranking, beginning Dec. 1. WIN’s TPI will be updated on a weekly basis through the NCAA Division I qualifying tournaments in early March.
