Noah Surtin wins Big XII Wrestler of Week, Men’s Hoops opens SEC Play


Kudos to RS-Freshman Noah Surtin, who was named Big XII Wrestler of the Week after his 3-0 performance at the Collegiate Duals on December 20-21.


Ranked No. 15 at 125 pounds by Intermat at the time of the dueling tournament, Surtin finished a clear 3-0, including two top-15 upsets. He started the tournament with a dominant performance against Nick Curley of Binghamton, winning by technology drop early in the second period.

He continued the effort with a convincing victory over the fifth-ranked wrestler, beating Jakob Camacho of North Carolina State 7-4 with an exclamation mark at the end of the third period. Surtin ended his Duals run by beating the No.11 Lehigh Jaret Lane 10-4 in a game Surtin controlled from the first whistle.

As well, Good DRY opening to men’s hoops, who kicks off tonight against the No. 18 Kentucky. As you know, the Tigers will face Coach Cal’s Cats without head coach Cuonzo Martin, who is temporarily sidelined from the Covid. In Lila Bromberg’s new post for the KC Star, she mentioned that while Zo hasn’t been with the team in person, he has kept in touch with interim head coach Cornell Mann and the other assistants about training plans.

“Really the schedule hadn’t been much different, other than making sure we talked to the coach about the training plan, got together as assistants and put the plan in place and executed. of training to make sure our guys are in good physical health. and they are – mentally healthy – and they are, ”Mann said.

As for the progress of the Tigers this season, to which there has been some, Coach Mann provided some information:

“Sometimes the scoreboard can make you think you’re not improving, but we’re improving,” Mann said. “Sometimes it’s gradual, sometimes in pretty big places. And so I think they feel that, so I think it builds confidence. I think the confidence continues to improve.

It will be a tough and difficult task facing the Wildcats, especially on the road in what should be a crowded Rupp Arena, but I’m excited to watch the same. You can watch a video of Coach Corn’s media time at PowerMizzou.
