NCAA Rankings 2017-18

P4P: Nittany Lion Country

A lot of changes after a crazy NCAA tournament but one thing stays the same: There is an awful lot of Penn Staters on this list. Three out of the top four and five in the top 11. And four of them will be back next year. Yowza.

Yianni Diakomihalis makes the biggest leap, as he avenged his only collegiate loss and won one of the toughest weight classes this season. Spencer Lee also got revenge in Cleveland and shows up at #13. 

Joey McKenna, Stevan Micic, and Michael Macchiavello all sneak into the rankings after excellent postseasons.
