NCAA Rankings 2017-18

157: No Kneed To Worry

Jason Nolf put all fears about his injured knee to rest by winning a second straight NCAA title in his typically dominant manner. Tyler Berger outplaced his finish at the Big Ten Tournament but is still ranked below Kemerer, as Kemerer has the better body of work and injury defaulted out of their third-place match.

There was general chaos in the rest of the bracket with folks like Luke Zilverberg reaching the podium and unranked John Van Brill and last year's runner-up Joey Lavallee both losing in the round of 12.
