WHAT: 2019 Big Ten Wrestling Tournament
WHEN: Session III & IV -- Sunday, March 9, 2019
START TIME: 12:00 PM CT (Session III); 3:00 PM CT (Session IV)

RADIO: Hawkeye All-Access; AM 800 near Iowa City or iHeart Radio (online)

Iowa went 2-2 in the semis on Saturday, getting wins from Spencer Lee and Alex Marinelli, but enduring losses from Austin DeSanto and Jacob Warner. They went 7-3 in the consolation round, though, with Pat Lugo, Kaleb Young, and Cash Wilcke (as well as DeSanto and Warner) assured of finishing no worse than sixth here. Mitch Bowman and Sam Stoll suffered their second losses last night, ending their tournaments and, potentially, their seasons. 

The team title race is Penn State's in a walk, unless they forget to show up for Sunday's matches. Second place also looks out of reach for Iowa, with the Buckeyes holding a 28-point edge on Iowa. They also have four finalists to Iowa's two finalists. Iowa is currently fourth, 0.5 points behind Nebraska (who also has two finalists). Beat the Huskers, finish third, and let's try to claim a Big Ten solo champion or two.
