Welcome to the 2016 NCAA Wrestling championship tournament.

Day 1 Recap:

Mizzou did not have the best possible day on Thursday. 3 wrestlers went 0-2, and are out of the tournament.

Barlow McGhee & Blaise Butler are still alive in the consolation bracket.

Lavion Mayes, Daniel Lewis, Willie Miklus, & J'Den Cox are all still alive in the championship bracket and will wrestle in the quarterfinals this morning.

Day 2 Recap:

Morning session went as well as you could expected, 8-1 as a group. Only Mayes dropped to the consolations.

Evening session was anything but great. McGhee and Butler both lost in OT, just missing out on All-American honors.

Lewis & Miklus lost in the semis, dropping to the consolation brackets.

Mayes won his first consolation match, guaranteeing another AA.

Lewis, Miklus, and Mayes are all wrestling for a shot at the 3rd place match.
