Iowa rallies past Edinboro, 22-19
EDINBORO, Pa. – The University of Iowa wrestling team won five of the final six bouts to rally past No.15 Edinboro, 22-19, tonight inside McComb Fieldhouse.
“It was nice to battle back and get the dual win,” said UI head coach Tom Brands, “but we have a lot of work to do. We need to deal with tough situations better. They put together some wins, and it created some tightness and frustration. We need to go beyond that, stay aggressive, and score points.”
Iowa (5-0) trailed 13-4 before stringing together five consecutive wins beginning at 157 pounds, where Derek St. John scored a pair of takedowns in the final period to defeat Johnny Greisheime, 13-5. The major decision pulled Iowa within five points, 13-8, heading into the intermission.
The Hawkeye rally continued at 165, where Nick Moore cut the lead to two points, 13-11, with an 11-4 decision. Mike Evans then closed the gap completely and gave Iowa the lead for good, 15-13, with a 13-5 major decision at 174.
Ethen Lofthouse extended Iowa’s lead to 18-13 with a 3-2 win at 184, and Sammy Brooks clinched the victory with an 11-0 win at 197.
Brooks and Vince Pickett wrestled through a scoreless first period before Brooks turned Pickett three times in the second for eight nearfall points. He added a takedown in the third and 3:50 riding time for the final 11-0 win.
“I would like to have had a couple scores in the first period, but overall it felt good,” said Brooks. “He was giving me his wrist and I was wrestling aggressive on top. If he was going to keep giving it to me, I was going to take it over and over again.”
Thomas Gilman spotted Iowa a 4-0 lead with a major decision at 125 pounds. Gilman, who was making his collegiate dual debut, used five takedowns and 3:33 of riding time to top 17th-ranked Kory Mines, 12-3.
“It was nice to go out and get the early takedown,” said Gilman, who compiled 1:58 of riding time in the first period. “When there are points on the board you wrestle a lot less stiff, so I was able to get loose and gain some confidence. It was nice to get out there, wrestle hard, and score points.”
Edinboro (0-2) won three straight bouts at 133, 141, and 149. Eighth-ranked A.J. Schopp used a third-period escape to defeat top-ranked Tony Ramos, 3-2, at 133. Second-ranked Mitchell Port pinned No. 13 Josh Dziewa at 141, and 10th-ranked Dave Habat defeated Brody Grothus, 13-5, at 149.
“We made it hard on ourselves, but we also had guys that wrestled hard," said Brands. "Battling back for the dual win is a testament to their toughness.”
Iowa returns to the mat Thursday, Dec. 12, at 7 p.m. (CT) when Buffalo visits Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Admission is $12 for adults and $8 for youth. Children five years old and younger are admitted free. Contact the UI Athletics Ticket Office for further ticket information.

Reynolds Nominated for Allstate WBCA Good Works Team
Sophomore guard is one of 84 WBCA nominees for the prestigious award
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa guard Kathryn Reynolds has been nominated for the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Allstate Good Works Team. The announcement was made Tuesday by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), and Allstate Insurance Company.
“Kathryn is very deserving of this nomination,” said UI head coach Lisa Bluder. “She exemplifies what it means to be a student-athlete at the University of Iowa and for our basketball program.”
The award recognizes a select group of college basketball student-athletes who have made significant contributions to the greater good of their communities through volunteerism and civic service. In its second year, the Allstate WBCA and NABC Good Works Teams honor players at all levels of college basketball who represent the sport’s finest in the areas of leadership and charitable achievements amongst their peers. The student-athletes nominated for this prestigious award embody the true spirit of teamwork and giving back.
“Allstate is proud to recognize these two outstanding groups of men and women whose commitment to service and volunteerism demonstrate that ‘good works’ extend beyond the basketball court,” said Pam Hollander, senior director of marketing for Allstate Insurance Company and a member of the 2014 WBCA and NABC Good Works Teams selection panels. “Each of the nominees serves as a role model and inspiration to future generations seeking ways to give back, and another reason to celebrate the good happening in our communities.”
From the 84 WBCA nominees and 118 NABC nominees submitted by coaches and sports information directors across the nation on behalf of their schools, special voting panels will select two 10-member teams comprised of five student-athletes from the NCAA Division I level and five student-athletes from NCAA Divisions II, III and the NAIA. The final roster of 20 award recipients will be unveiled in February.
The 2014 nominees uphold impressive service resumes detailing unique and inspiring stories of servitude. From volunteering with sick and underprivileged children to lobbying state legislature for new laws that could help save lives, this exceptional group of young men and women demonstrate the positive impact student-athletes can have on and off the court.
Reynolds, a redshirt sophomore, hails from Cincinnati, Ohio. The redshirt sophomore is an active member in the community. An Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Reynolds played in 21 games as a freshman in 2011-12 before missing the entire 2012-13 season due to an ACL injury. She has played in six contests this season, averaging 2.8 points per game.
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- University of Iowa senior tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz and junior left offensive tackle Brandon Scherff have been named first team All-Big Ten by a vote of league coaches. In addition, senior defensive back B.J. Lowery was a first team selection by league media. The teams were announced by the Big Ten Conference Monday on the BTN’s annual show revealing the 2013 all-conference teams and individual award winners.
The Big Ten coaches second unit includes senior right offensive tackle Brett Van Sloten, junior defensive tackle Carl Davis and senior linebackers Anthony Hitchens and James Morris. The Big Ten media second unit includes Scherff, Fiedorowicz, Morris and senior kicker Mike Meyer.
Hawkeye players earning honorable mention recognition on both the coaches and media units include sophomore center Austin Blythe, senior offensive guard Conor Boffeli, senior linebacker Christian Kirksey, senior defensive back Tanner Miller and junior defensive tackle Louis Trinca-Pasat.
Lowery was named honorable mention by Big Ten coaches, while Big Ten media named Davis, Hitchens, Van Sloten, senior long snapper Casey Kreiter and junior defensive back John Lowdermilk to the honorable mention squad. Morris is also Iowa’s recipient of the Big Ten’s Sportsmanship Award.
Fiedorowicz (Johnsburg, Ill.), has at least one reception in 30 straight games and his season totals include 26 catches for 253 yards and six touchdowns. Scherff (Denison, Iowa), has started every game at left tackle after missing seven games a year ago due to injury.

Miller (Kalona, Iowa), has also enjoyed a steady career 35 games over the past three seasons. This season he has recorded 63 tackles and is tied for second on the team with three interceptions. He is the fourth current Hawkeyes with over 200 career tackles (215). Trinca-Pasat (Chicago), has started at defensive tackle in 24 straight games. He has 34 tackles this season, including seven tackles for loss and a recovered fumble.
Lowdermilk (Carrollton, Ohio), is in his first season as a starter and recorded 72 tackles, fourth on the team behind the trio of linebackers. Kreiter (DeWitt, Iowa), joined the team as a walk-on and has handled deep snaps for three consecutive years, snapping for all field goal and PAT attempts in every game.
Morris has been recognized for his talents both on and off the field. He has twice been named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. He is one of 16 players in the nation to be named a National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athlete and he is one of four finalists for the Lott IMPACT Trophy and one of 12 finalists for the Wuerffel Trophy.
With an 8-4 record, Iowa is tied for third among all BCS schools in win total improvement from 2012 to 2013, trailing only Auburn (+8), Boston College (+6) and Missouri (+6). The Hawkeyes are tied with Michigan State and Duke. Iowa is bowl eligible for the 12th time in 13 seasons and has won at least eight games in four of the last six years.
