Cornell's #14 Meyer Shapiro Majors #5 Brock Mauller of Missouri

Cornell true freshman Meyer Shapiro has been on a roll since suffering a pair of setbacks at the 2023 Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational on Dec. 1. He's won eight matches in a row with five bonus-point victories. 

Shapiro's 14-4 major decision over Missouri's fifth-ranked Brock Mauller may have been his most impressive college victory to date. The two-time age-level World champion used four takedowns, including a highlight-worthy drag to a duck in the second period. 

Mauller is a senior three-time All-American who has been a staple for the Tiger line-up.

No. 9 Cornell knocked off #4 Missouri by winning six of 10 matches after #4 Noah Surtin picked up a fall at 125 pounds to give the Tigers a 6-0 lead. Cornell's returning NCAA champion Vito Arujau needed a riding time point at 133 pounds for a 10-9 win over Cade Moore. 

No. 1 Keegan O'Toole of Missouri knocked off #4 Julian Ramirez, 13-5, after giving up the first takedown of the match.
