Last season’s conference tournament was one of the most exciting in recent memory. Cornell took home the team title with a half-point win over Penn, 128-127.5. Penn’s Cesar Grajales won the Coaches’ Trophy for his performance in the tournament, including a tiebreaker win over J.P. O’Connor in the final at 149 pounds.
