Columbia, Mo. - Closing out the regular season at home, the fifth-ranked Missouri wrestling team (18-4, 3-1) upset second-ranked Iowa State (13-3), 18-15, to finish the campaign 3-1 in the conference for just the third time in league history. Missouri's 18th win of the year ties for the most ever recorded in program history, a mark first set in 1967-68 (18-0-1) and again in 2001-02 (18-3). Tiger Head Coach Brian Smith becomes the first Missouri wrestling coach to ever record two 18-win seasons.

Missouri collected wins in five of the 10 matches, beginning with 10th-ranked 141 pounder Marcus Hoehn (Farmington, Mo.). One of six seniors recognized prior to the days' dual, Hoehn pulled off an upset of his own by topping third-ranked Nick Gallick, 4-3, in sudden victory. Tied at three at the end of regulation, Hoehn and Gallick were forced into a one minute sudden victory period to determine the winner. Gallick, who had been hit with stalling in the third period, was tagged again with 10 seconds remaining on the clock. The second stall call against Gallick awarded Hoehn the decisive one point victory.

A loss at 149 points brought the Cyclones within three points of the Tigers. Earlier in the dual, Iowa State won the 125 pound match, 4-2, in the second tie breaker and forfeited at 133 pounds.

Wrestling at 157 pounds, eighth-ranked Michael Chandler (High Ridge, Mo.) held on for his third career win over seventh-ranked Cyler Sanderson. Blanking the Cyclone, 4-0, Chandler scored a takedown late in the first period, escaped four seconds into the second period and tallied 2:04 of riding time for the win.

Fifth-ranked Nicholas Marable (Collierville, Tenn.) earned his sixth win of the season by a score of 3-2. Besting seventh-ranked Jon Reader, Marable and his opponent were scoreless through the first three minutes of the match. Marable chose down to start the second and escaped in five seconds. Starting down in the third, Reader escaped but was returned to the mat, only to escape again. With time running out, Reader was unable to score any further points, giving Marable his 21st win of the season.

Rebounding from his Friday night loss, fifth-ranked Raymond Jordan (New Bern, N.C.) proved the stronger wrestler, outscoring 18th-ranked Duke Burke, 6-1, at 174 pounds. Jordan held Burke to a single escape in the third, collecting a second period escape, and takedown as well as a takedown in the third and 1:43 of riding time for his final win in the Hearnes Center.

The Tigers suffered losses in the final three weight classes, but held on for the win, just the second ever over ISU in the Hearnes Center and fourth over Iowa State in the Tigers' 63 year history.

Missouri will have nearly three weeks to prepare for the 13th annual Big 12 Championships, March 7, in Lincoln, Neb. Held on the University of Nebraska campus in The Coliseum, the all day tournament will feature several of the nations' best grapplers in a competition for Big 12 supremacy.
