WHAT: 2019 NCAA Wrestling Tournament
WHEN: Session II -- Thursday, March 21, 2019
START TIME: 6:00 PM CT
WHERE: PPG Paints Arena (Pittsburgh, PA)
TV: ESPN
ONLINE:  WatchESPN / ESPN3
RADIO: Hawkeye All-Access; AM 800 near Iowa City or iHeart Radio (online)

Iowa made a strong showing of things in the first round, winning all nine matches (including a pair of upsets) and picking up bonus points in three of nine wins. You can get a full recap of the R1 action right here. Time to gear up for some round two action now. 

TEAM SCORE
1) 21.0 -- Penn State
2) 15.5 -- Ohio State
3) 15.0 -- Oklahoma State
4) 14.0 -- Iowa
5) 13.5 -- Minnesota

Penn State leads after R1 because of course they do. They also went 9/9 in the first round... they just did so with a lot more bonus points. So it goes. 

Here's what's on deck for Round Two for Iowa wrestlers: 

WEIGHT IOWA VS OPPONENT
125 #3 Spencer Lee vs #14 Sean Fausz (NC State)
133 #7 Austin DeSanto vs #10 Roman Bravo-Young (Penn State)
141 #22 Max Murin vs #6 Mike Carr (Illinois)
149 #10 Pat Lugo vs #26 Ryan Blees (Virginia Tech)
157 #6 Kaleb Young vs #11 Ke-Shawn Hayes (Ohio State)
165 #1 Alex Marinelli vs #16 Thomas Bullard (NC State)
184 #12 Cash Wilcke vs  #5 Max Dean (Cornell)
197 #5 Jacob Warner vs #21 Thomas Lane (Cal Poly)
285 #28 Sam Stoll vs #12 Conan Jennings (Northwestern)

I'll be posting results and discussion in the comments, but feel free to join in, too. 

The usual rules apply.
