#13 Rutgers over Indiana 25-9


We’re in the heart of the B1G season and there are very few easy matches this time of year. A young Indiana team came into the RAC to grapple with a talented and deep Rutgers team. Even with a shuffled lineup the Scarlet knights dropped a hammer on the Hoosiers. The match started at 174. I’m guessing that Indiana wanted to give their 125lber Oliver as much recovery time as possible after weigh ins. 184 may have been the marquee match up. Nate Jackson was able to control space and finish when it counted in a close win over Gravina. Razohnn Gross showed some match maturity and strategy with a sudden victory win. Rutgers kept John Van Brill out of the line up due to the number of competition days. Anthony Giraldo stepped in with a dramatic come from behind victory. I’m not sure if the highlights will show it but Giraldo was clearly enjoying the moment, cracking a small smile mid mat close to the end of the match.
