I was looking through some results of last year's tournaments (conference and NCAA's) and was surprised by some of the results. I counted 3 NCAA champs that didn't win their conference tournaments: Dake, Amuchastegui, Rey. Also this year's #1 ranked LeBlanc didn't win his conferrence tournament last year either. Even UVU's Kjar who came in #4 at the NCAA's at 125, only came in 3rd in the WAC. These noted results were far from exhaustive.
One of my past favorite's was Molinaro as a FR placing 8th at the B1G's and needing a wildcard to get into the NCAA's and then coming in 8th.
What significant disparities have you noted between conference results and NCAA results--especially low conference placings and then winning the NCAA's.
