Arizona State’s Valencia takes over top spot at 174 in Jan 30 Rankings

Updated: January 30, 2017

NEWTON, Iowa — Arizona State’s Zahid Valencia has taken over the No. 1 position at 174 pounds while Penn State and Oklahoma State remain the top teams in WIN’s Jan. 30 rankings, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

Valencia, a redshirt freshman who has compiled a 27-0 record with bonus points in 19 of his victories — including eight by pin — moved into the top spot in his weight class after previously top-ranked Virginia Tech’s Zach Epperly lost in overtime to Lehigh’s Ryan Preisch last Friday. Valencia edged out Ohio State’s Bo Jordan — who is 9-0 with eight bonus-points wins, including three by fall — in this week’s rankings.

Meanwhile, both Penn State and Oklahoma State are now the only undefeated teams at 10-0 — after Ohio State lost to Iowa on Friday. The Nittany Lions are ranked No. 1 in WIN Tournament Power Index, while the Cowboys, No. 2 in the TPI, rank ahead of the Lions in WIN’s Dual Team rankings.

The two teams could meet in the upcoming NWCA National Duals Series, Feb. 19, when Oklahoma State could host Penn State in a dual meet if the Lions win the Big Ten dual season. Penn State and Ohio State, which fell behind Iowa in WIN’s Dual rankings, are scheduled to wrestle this Friday in State College, Pa.

WIN’s TPI point totals are based on how individuals of each team are projected to finish in the 2017 NCAA Championships, March 16-18, in St. Louis, with Top-8 finishers (All-Americans) given the following points: 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). Additional points for other rankings include: 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points will be lower than the final actual NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.
