Binghamton wrestling won six of 10 bouts and rallied from eight points down to defeat host Buffalo 22-18 Friday night from Alumni Arena. The Bearcats (5-11) seized the win when heavyweight standout Tyler Deuel posted a pin in 50 seconds in the final match of the night.
With BU trailing 18-16, Deuel took the mat and won his 10th straight match - and 13th straight dual match - giving BU its winning margin. Deuel, ranked No. 24 in the latest NCAA Coaches’ Panel Rankings (Feb. 10), improved to 25-5 overall record, 14-2 in duals. It was his team-high 10th pin of the season.
Senior 197-pound Cody Reed also extended his win streak to 10 in a row with a 5-2 decision. Reed, No. 25 in the NCAA Coaches’ Panel Rankings, is 23-8 record on the season, 13-3 in duals.
Other winners for the Bearcats were junior 125-pound David White, junior 149-pound Joe Bonaldi, sophomore 165-pound Vincent Grella and junior 184-pound Caleb Wallace.
