Big Ten Roundup


Iowa got great performances by Kemerer and Brooks, but not much else. If you are a fan of National Duals, this keeps the hope alive for an undefeated matchup of #1 & #2. However, Iowa could spoil it with duals against Penn State and Ohio State in the next couple weekends.

Michigan says Assad got banged up at Thursday's practice and with their backup out for the year, they forfeited both duals this weekend. Bannister is a fire hydrant of terror. Nice to see Striggow & Battaglia get wins.

**NOTE: Wisconsin was penalized one team point during the 157-pound match after its bench was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Ohio State seems to lead the wrestling world in bonus point matches both for and against. There was only one decision in this whole dual. Tomasello destroying Richards was surprising.

Micic handed Montoya his first loss of the year in impressive fashion. Hall had a good match and is a candidate to make the NCAA's this year if he wrestles like that. Berger was struggling with Murphy until he caught a leg coming in and stacked him.
