Yates landed hard on his shoulder during his match with ISU's Sorenson. He was in pain most of the match. The reversal he got to avoid a TF was heroic.
Neibert had a little fun in his match against Little on Sunday -- he had to take an injury timeout with one of his fingers bent at a very odd angle. (I did NOT need to see that.) I think that got Little his first point, because he was able to restart on bottom and got an escape.
Stephens has beaten Palmer before....he's exposing his back way to often. He's also taking way too long to finish his shots. I think we might see either Hurd (if Yates is back) or Mears at 157 next weekend.
