Coming from behind at NCAAs

Recommended Posts

For some reason, it occurred to me that Yianni in 2018 was behind in the quarters to Heil, the semis to Eierman, and the finals to Meredith.  In 2019, he trailed in the semis to Eierman again, and of course in the finals to McKenna.

Anyone else have runs like that?  For a 2-fer-2 guy with a career 66-1 record, that's certainly living on the edge.

Not sure if you want this to apply to only champions.

When Kevin Jack of NC State made his mark as a freshman, he beat the #5  Dziewa,  the #12 Ward, and the #4 Carter to make the semis where he lost to Stieber.   In each of the first three matches, he gave up the first takedown and came back to win.  Lost to Heil in the Consolations after defeating him in the dual at Raleigh. 

Coming back after losing the first takedown isn't particularly impressive in any single match, but doing it in three consecutive matches at that level gets some attention.
