COLUMBIA, Mo. - Missouri senior 141 pounder Todd Schavrien was named Big 12 Wrestler of the Week, as announced by the league office on Monday.  It is the first weekly honor for the Poway, Calif., native and the first for the Tigers since the 2008-09 season.

Schavrien helped the Tigers to a 2-0 day at the Indiana Duals on Sunday with a pair of bonus point victories, as he defeated Eastern Michigan's Mike Leholm by a 17-0 score and pinned Indiana's Mitchell Rinsey in 4:50.

Schavrien recorded his technical fall win in the first period, as he made quick work of Leholm.  He scored a quick takedown early in the match, and rolled Leholm over five times for three-point near falls, scoring the win with 10 seconds left in the first period.

Against Rinsey, Schavrien went up 3-0 with a first period takedown and a second period escape.  Late in the second, Rinsey attempted a cradle on Schavrien, but he was able to keep Rinsey on his back and record the pin with 10 seconds remaining in the second.

Schavrien, the lone senior in Missouri's starting lineup this season, is now 10-2 on the year and has won eight straight matches dating back to Nov. 27.  He ranks as high as No. 13 in the nation at 141 pounds.
