Badgers regain momentum after defeating Spartans, 28-7

UW picks up eight out of 10 victories

EAST LANSING, Mich.- Coming off a tough loss in Ann Arbor just two days earlier, Wisconsin wrestling had a chip on its shoulder entering Sunday's dual in Jenison Field House against the Michigan State Spartans. After being down 7-6 heading into the fifth match, the Badgers earned a victory in each of the final six matches to capture a 28-7 victory.

"Reflecting on the weekend, it's clear that we have a good wrestling team," associate head coach Trevor Brandvold said. "We are tough to beat when we are getting to our leg attacks, fighting through positions and riding hard. When we are getting beat in matches, we are losing focus or turning down from positions. That can and will be fixed by the time Indiana comes into town. We are looking forward to coming home."

Eli Stickley arguably had the biggest win of the day, defeating No. 20-ranked Javier Gasca in a 6-2 decision at 141 pounds. Neither Eli nor Gasca gave any ground during the entire match, but it was a mistake by Gasca that Stickley took advantage of to get a takedown and four near-fall points to secure the victory.

Coming off of his biggest win of the year on Friday against Michigan's fifth-ranked Alec Pantaleo, Andrew Crone kept his hot streak alive, defeating Michigan State's Jake Tucker by a 7-0 decision at 157 pounds. Like Stickley, Crone was able to capitalize on an opening in Tucker's stance to get a takedown and a cradle for four near-fall points.

Evan Wick was an offensive force once again, bringing opponent Austin Hiles down five times and cradling him to get two four-point nearfalls en route to a 19-4 tech fall in the 165-pound weight class. That tech was Wick's fifth of the year and second of the weekend, as he defeated Michigan's Reece Hughes in a 19-3 victory. His additional five takedowns in the bout brought his season total up to 65, which leads all UW starters by nearly 30.

Hunter Ritter is still riding the momentum from his ranked win at Michigan, leaving East Lansing with a 6-2 decision over the Spartans' 197-pounder Nick May.

Following three-straight losses, Ryan Christensen was able to turn the tide around, picking up a last-second nail-biting 3-1 victory with a takedown on MSU's Logan Ritchie at 174 pounds.

Jens Lantz took his Spartan opponent Matt Santos to the mat five times in a 12-3 major decision victory at 133 pounds.

Not getting the result he wanted against Michigan's Dominic Abounader, Ricky Robertsontallied his 20th victory of the season at 184 pounds, defeating Michigan State's Shwan Shadaia in a 7-2 decision.

Cole Martin got his first victory of the season in the 149-pound weight class, defeating Spartan Jwan Britton by a 13-5 major decision.

The Badgers will now come home to focus on their next competition after being away from the Madison for over a month-and-a-half, hosting conference rival Indiana on Friday at 7 p.m. (CT) inside the UW Field House.

Nebraska and Rutgers should both be good duals. Hope we get Zander back for those. Also for all the St. Donny talk and how he is doing so great. If you go through our dual with them it is very close either way. They inappropriate term and moan about our team and rave about what he is doing.

Wrestlestat shows the Nebraska matchup being 15-15 and Rutgers winning 26-6.  Interestingly, they have Evan Wick losing both. 

Both will be tough and will need a healthy Zander.  Looking at wrestlestat, a lot of the predicted results are very close.

Donít see us losing 26-6. Almost every match will be a toss up besides 125 and 133.

not sure if we see a healthy Zander for awhile but I certainly hopes he comes back and is ready to go!
