Thread: Penn State's 143 points

  1. #1

    Default Penn State's 143 points

    I believe I read it was the fifth best in NCAA history, which is kind of amazing when you realize not everything went well for them. First, Pearsall doesn't get an at-large spot. Second, Wade and MM get 3 points between them. Third, two guys lose in the finals. They could have had more and I strongly believe they will next year.

    For the life of me, I can't find the point totals of team champions in NCAA history. Is it true the total was fifth highest ever?

    It looks like tied for 7th or so, if my eyes are still working...

    2003 Ok State also had 143

    1985 Iowa 145.5
    1992 Iowa 149
    2005 Ok State 153
    1983 Iowa 155
    1991 Iowa 157
    1997 Iowa 170 (holy.....)

    Oklahoma and Indiana both won with the lowest score - 14 points. Barry Davis must have been hoping for that kind of year this year.

    They did have a lot of pins. Why don't you ask on the Everything PSU thread? I'll bet kr knows.

    Good point. Way to be loyal. Why not upgrade to the pornstache avatar, though?
