Wisconsin Badgers Wrestling MAN OF THE MAT Award
The intent of this prestigious, almost Hodge-like, award is to highlight a wrestler from the Wisconsin Badgers Wrestling team that had the most outstanding performance from the event.
No. 5 Dean Hamiti vs No. 18 Antrell Taylor.
These two great competitors fought a tough match with great zest from both of them. After a few hands in the face calls against Taylor – you could see Hamiti was getting annoyed by it. Following the conclusion of the match – Taylor and Hamiti had some words.
“I grabbed his head a little bit at the end, a little outlet of my emotion, maybe I shouldn’t have done it.” DJ is always class and respectful but I for one (and the fans cheering) love the smoke!
These two men are elite and will almost certainly meet again at the Big Ten tournament at some point will not forget this match.
SIGN. ME. UP!
Following that gritty 7–2 win – Dean Hamiti is the winner of the MAN OF THE MAT award!
