INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA has released standings for the 2013 NCAA Most Dominant Wrestler Award and most falls and tech falls in Divisions I, II and III. 

A minimum of 14 matches are required to be eligible for the Most Dominant Wrestler standings this week. That required match total will increase by one per week until 18 matches is reached. Athletes redshirting the 2013 season are not eligible for any of the award standings.

In the Most Dominant Wrestler category, Ohio State’s Logan Stieber leads the standings for the second consecutive week in Division I with an average of 5.5714 points. The 133-pounder’s tally remains the highest mark across all divisions. Behind Stieber in Division I is Kent State’s Dustin Kilgore who rose from third to second in the standings with an average 5.069 clip.

Carl Broghammer of Upper Iowa is the new leader in Division II with an average of five points at 197 pounds. Broghammer is trailed by Shamus O’Grady (St. Cloud State), last week’s leader, whose average is 4.6842 points.

Wisconsin-Stevens Point’s Jordan Koranda held onto his divisional lead as the most dominant wrestler in Division III and increased his average from 5.4 to 5.5 points. The heavyweight’s mark remains the second-best among all wrestlers. In second place at the Division III level is Nazar Kulchytskyy of Wisconsin-Oshkosh with 5.3 points.

At 197 pounds, Kilgore leads all divisions in pins with 15 and holds a three-pin lead in Division I over Edinboro’s A.J. Schopp. On the heels of Schopp is 165-pounder Kyle Dake (Cornell) with 11 pins.

Four wrestlers in Division II have posted eight falls, but Jan Steven Ulinski of Findlay holds an advantage after achieving those wins in 13:32.

Kulchytskyy has accumulated 16 pins, a cross-divisional best. At 157 pounds, Kulchytskyy holds an advantage against Jordan Koranda (Wisconsin-Stevens Point) in Division III who also has 16 pins, but has a cumulative time of 36:22 compared to Kulchytskyy’s 31:10. In third place in Division III is Ohio Northern’s heavyweight Cody Lovejoy with 14 falls. 

In the tech fall standings, Penn State’s David Taylor (165 pounds) and Cornell’s Nahshon Garrett (125 pounds) each own seven, but Taylor holds the advantage in the standings, achieving those wins in 43:08 compared to Garrett’s cumulative time of 45:43. Eight other wrestlers follow Taylor and Garrett with five tech falls a piece.

The lone leader in Division II tech falls is Dylan D’Urso of Mercyhurst for the second consecutive week, with six at 133 pounds.

Ohio Northern’s Kyle Kwiat is the cross-divisional leader in tech falls with 11, three more than any other wrestler in Division III.

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)
