No. 1 seed Roman Bravo-Young entered the Big Ten Tournament as the substantial favorite to finish the weekend as the Big Ten champion. Bravo-Young did exactly that in his 5-2 decision victory over No. 2 Austin Desanto (Iowa). The win marks the first Big Ten title in Bravo-Young's career.

This win over Desanto marks Bravo-Young's third consecutive victory over the Hawkeye. The smoothness and efficiency of Bravo-Young really made the difference in this match, as he was able to finish his chances efficiently. 

Bravo-Young will enter the NCAA Tournament as one of the favorites to make the Tournament finals. Last season, he finished second in the Big Ten to Sebastian Rivera and was the No. 5 seed at NCAAs until the tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
