Weekly NCAA Division I, II and III Award Standings

By Matthew Holmes, NCAA

INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA has released the updated standings for the 2014 NCAA Most Dominant Wrestler Awards, in addition to standings for the most falls and tech falls within Divisions I, II and III. These awards will be presented in March at the respective NCAA Wrestling Championships. All of the standings only include matches between wrestlers in the same division.

The Most Dominant Wrestler standings are calculated by adding the total number of points awarded through match results and dividing that number by the total number of matches wrestled. Points awarded per match are as follows:

*Fall, forfeit, injury default or DQ = 6 points (-6 points for a loss)
*Tech falls = 5 points (-5 points for a loss)
* Major decision = 4 points (-4 points for a loss)
*Decision = 3 points (-3 points for a loss)

This week a minimum of 14 matches are required to be eligible for the Most Dominant Wrestler standings. That required match total will increase by one per week until 18 matches is reached. Athletes redshirting the 2014 season are not eligible for any of the award standings.

In the Most Dominant standings, 2012 NCAA Most Dominant Wrestler David Taylor of Penn State maintains his lead with an average of 5.2 points. The 165-pounder’s tally is the highest across all three divisions. Oklahoma 174-pounder Andrew Howe checks in second with an average of 4.8667 points, while Taylor’s teammate, Edward Ruth (184 pounds), comes in third with 4.5789 points.
