The NCAA announced a scoring error happened in the 157-pound quarterfinal between Cornell’s Brian Realbuto and Kent State’s Ian Miller that cost the Golden Flash a victory and a spot in tonight’s semifinals.
Realbuto was awarded an 11-9 sudden victory decision against Miller after officials ruled the match ended 9-9 in regulation. The bout should not have gone to overtime when mat officials did not count an escape by Miller shortly before Realbuto scored a takedown with six seconds left to force overtime.
“The NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee met to discuss the scoring error in the match,” said a prepared statement by the NCAA. “Our determination was that there is a protocol in place for coaches to challenge errors in a match via the coach’s challenge (Rule 3.32.2b). Kent State had challenges remaining and did not raise the challenge flag to declare an error in the match, therefore the resulting Cornell victory stands.”
The following is a breakdown of how the scoring should have happened in the 157-pound quarterfinal, which was given to the Big Red wrestler:
1:28 — Miller reversal 1:28, Miller leads 6-3
0:56 Miller takedown off of a scramble, 8-4
0:24 Realbuto takedown, 8-7
:06 Realbuto takedown, 9-9
