  • BOSTON, MA - Despite a 19-4 tech-fall by 184-pound senior Rudy Medini (Colonia , NJ) and a win by 141-pound junior Steve Adamcsik (Chester , NJ) , the Rutgers University wrestling team lost to the Terriers of Boston University, 27-20, on Saturday afternoon.

    Behind Medini's tech-fall over Elijah Vidal, the Scarlet Knights got off to a solid start; however, BU went on to win the next three matches and opened up a 12-5 lead.

    RU rallied behind consecutive victories by freshman Kellen Bradley ( Hamtpon, NJ) at 133 pounds and Adamcsik at 141 pounds; unfortunately, it was not enough as BU won three of the final four matches to close out the dual meet.

    Sophomore 157-pounder Jamie Lijo ( Hopatcong, NJ ) pinned Mike Roberts just 45 seconds into their match for his 17th victory of the season.

    With the victory, Adamcsik extended his personal winning streak to a career-best 17 matches. The junior's streak began with a victory over Spencer Manley of Navy on Dec. 3, 2005.

    Medini's victory improved his overall record on the season to 20-4 and gives him an even 70 wins for his Rutgers career. He currently sits alone in 23rd place all-time on RU's career wins list.

    The loss dropped the Scarlet Knights to 7-6 overall on the season, including 3-5 in the EIWA conference. The Terriers improved to 4-7 overall.

    The Scarlet Knights will be back in action on Saturday, Feb. 4, when they travel to Fairfield, CT to take on Sacred Heart University at 6:00 p.m.
