On Saturday, Virginia Tech travels to New York where they will have a dual with Binghamton. While the dual will have plenty of action, the marquee matchup will happen at 184 between rivals #2 Hunter Bolen and #6 Lou DePrez.
Saturday, Jan 18 | 3:00 PM ET
Hunter Bolen and Lou DePrez met in last year's Southern Scuffle semifinals. Their first match was close but it was ultimately Bolen who came out on top 3-2. In the offseason, DePrez evened the score with an 11-0 technical superiority win in the third-place match at the 2019 U23 World Team Trials.
Bolen and DePrez met in a rubber-match in the consolation bracket at this year's Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational. Bolen went out to a 6-0 lead with a takedown and turn in the first period. DePrez looked dominant from the top position, but Bolen ultimately took the match 8-3.
The skill of each of these top 184-pounders and their competitive history makes this one of the top matches of the weekend and a match that could have big implications for NCAA seeding. You won't want to miss it.
