Tech Notes: Shakur Rasheed vs Myles Martin
Feb 7, 2019The top-ranked and returning national champion Penn State Nittany Lions travel to Columbus to take on the #2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. The stakes won’t be limited to #1 vs #2 in the team race on Friday, this dual is peppered with ranked vs ranked match ups. One of the more intriguing matchups is at 184 where Penn State’s Shakur Rasheed will try to unseat the current ruler of the weight, two time NCAA finalist, Myles Martin. While both Shakur and Martin have unbeaten records 184 has been Martin’s domain all season since Bo Nickal cleared from the weight class, but that is not to suggest that Myles has coasted in his winning ways, MyMar boasts a 76.92% bonus percentage in his 13 wins. Shak is putting up some pretty serious numbers himself with 13 bonus point wins in 16 bouts.
