University of Iowa Wrestling

 

Sat, Mar 28, 2020 12:22 pm

 

IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa head wrestling coach Tom Brands has been named 2020 InterMat Coach of the Year, the amateur wrestling website announced Friday.

 

This award, presented each year since 2006 to the best college wrestling coach in all divisions for his/her college wrestling coaching performance during the 2019-2020 season, is based exclusively on the balloting of writers at InterMat. Brands won the award with eight of 10 first-place votes, and 84 total points. Princeton’s Chris Ayers was second with 39 points.

Brands led the Hawkeyes to the top of every national ranking this season, posting a 13-0 dual record and 9-0 Big Ten Conference record. The Hawkeyes won the 2020 Big Ten Championships, crowing three individual champions and scoring 157.5 points, its highest total since 1995. Brands was named Big Ten Coach of the Year, and junior Spencer Lee was named Big Ten Wrestler of the Year.

 

The Hawkeyes entered the 2020 NCAA Championships with three top seeds, nine wrestlers seeded eighth or better, and another seeded 11th. Iowa was the favorite to win the NCAA team title. It would have been its 24th team title in program history.

 

Iowa also led the nation in attendance for the 14th straight year, setting a NCAA dual record average of 12,568.

Sage Karam wins American Red Cross Grand Prix

 

INDIANAPOLIS (March 28, 2020) – Dreyer & Reinbold Racing driver Sage Karam (No. 24 DRR Wix Filters Chevrolet) got the virtual INDYCAR iRacing Challenge rolling Saturday with a win from the pole in the American Red Cross Grand Prix at Watkins Glen International.

Karam led 43 of the 45 laps and beat Chip Ganassi Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist (No. 10 NTT DATA Honda) by 3.6174 seconds in the debut event of the six-race INDYCAR iRacing Challenge. Team Penske’s Will Power (No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet) finished third.

While this may have been his first virtual win against a full field of fellow NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers, he is no stranger to Victory Lane in iRacing. It was his 144th iRacing road-course win in 533 starts and 165th iRacing victory overall. For the win, he will have a donation to American Red Cross made in his name by INDYCAR and earn a virtual winner’s trophy and ring from Jostens.

Karam, the 2013 Indy Lights champion, has made 19 actual NTT INDYCAR SERIES starts over six seasons, scoring a career-best third at Iowa Speedway in 2015.

“It was nerve-wracking there at the end, for sure,” he said in reference to a late-race, near-miss with Indy Pro 2000 champion Kyle Kirkwood, who was subbing for Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay in the No. 28 DHL Honda. “That was a little too close for comfort (in Turn 10), a (scary) moment. I didn’t know which way he was going to go when he started to spin, so I had to quick rely on some instincts and picked ‘left’ and thankfully it was the right choice.”

Karam, one of the most experienced iRacing drivers in this field, applauded his competitors for investing the necessary practice time this week to make the inaugural online show entertaining for the fans.

“It was a lot of fun, and it was great that we could give the fans something to watch,” he said. “It’s the only sport that (the world) can really do right now. I’m happy that I got the win for Wix Filters and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing. The car looked pretty good out front so hopefully when we get to real racing, we can replicate that.”

The virtual event featured most of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers expecting to be in the midst of the actual season had the coronavirus pandemic not occurred. The upside of being able to stage such an event was that it allowed seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and two-time Virgin Australia Supercars champion Scott McLaughlin to participate against them.

Team Penske’s McLaughlin (No. 2 Shell V-Power Chevrolet) was strong, finishing fourth ahead of NTT INDYCAR SERIES rookie Oliver Askew (No. 7 Arrow McLaren SP).

Johnson, who has eyes on INDYCAR road racing in the future, started ninth and ran well in his INDYCAR virtual debut despite having a couple of incidents. He was collected in the first-lap accident that included Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi (No. 27 AutoNation/NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda), among others. Then on Lap 34, Johnson’s car drifted wide exiting the track’s famed “bus stop” section and hit the outside wall. He finished 16th.

The race featured the virtual debut of INDYCAR’s new Aeroscreen, a revolutionary cockpit-protecting device. The visuals provided by iRacing, the world’s premier motorsports racing simulation, gave INDYCAR fans a glimpse of the actual racing to come.

The action might have been online, but it wasn’t without significant effort on the part of the participants. Rosenqvist, an avid virtual racer, sounded tired afterward in his post-race interview.

“A long and sweaty race,” he said. “Good fun.

“It was hard to catch Sage. I think that was a very deserved win for him. I tried to take advantage of some lapping from the cars behind, but he always seemed to get through the traffic even better. He seemed to have (the lead) under control.”

The second of six events will be held Saturday, April 4, on the Barber Motorsports Park permanent road course. The event will be held at 4 p.m. ET and streamed through INDYCAR.com while INDYCAR’s YouTube and Facebook platforms as well as iRacing’s Twitch will serve as additional outlets for viewing.

Future events will be held weekly each Saturday through May 2 at the following sites: a “Driver’s Choice” track (April 11), “Random Draw” track (April 18), Circuit of The Americas (April 25) and a non-INDYCAR “Dream” track (May 2).

Wright State Raiders Men’s Basketball: A look back at 25-win season and Horizon League Regular Season Championship

Wright State Raiders 2019-20 Team

The 2019-20 Wright State men’s basketball season was a year full of program-bests but was left with thoughts of what was left on the court after the abrupt ending to the season.

The Raiders won 25 games, setting the new program standard for most wins in a regular season in the Division I Era, and won 15 Horizon League games, also a new program-best, on the way to Wright State’s first outright Horizon League regular season title in program history. Additionally, the team’s six road Horizon League victories were the most in program history and the Raiders were a perfect 9-0 at home in league play on the way to a 14-2 overall home mark at the Nutter Center.

The team was set to continue its season in the NIT before NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors announced the cancelations of all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships, including the 2020 National Invitation Tournament, on March 12 due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

“I told our guys I don’t want anything to take away from the historic season that we had and the good light that it brought on the University and athletic department,” head coach Scott Nagy said. “We owe a lot to our seniors, who have set the foundation for our program, and we feel that they have left it in a better place than when they arrived.”

Wright State was rewarded for its regular season play, however, taking home seven Horizon League yearly honors, headlined by Player of the Year selection Loudon Love and Co-Coach of the Year honors for Nagy, which were also the most in Wright State program history. Nagy’s selection made him the first coach in Horizon League history to be named the Horizon League Coach of the Year in three straight seasons, while Love was the first Wright State player to earn the Horizon League’s top individual honor since DeShaun Wood following the 2006-2007 season.

The Raiders were the only team to have a member on the All-Horizon League first, second and third team, led by Love’s Player of the Year selection. Love averaged a double-double during Horizon League play with 17.7 points and 10.0 rebounds per game, while Second Team selection Bill Wampler was right behind him in terms of points averaging 17.2 per game while also leading the HL with a 47.4 three-point shooting percentage. Cole Gentry made the All-League third team after averaging 11.0 points per game and in League play finished tops in assist-to-turnover ratio.

Additionally, the Horizon League’s recognition of Grant Basile and Tanner Holden to the All-Freshman Team marked the first time in Wright State history that the Raiders had two players earn the Horizon League’s All-Freshman honors.

Wright State was one of 23 teams in the country to finish the season with 25 or more victories. The Raiders did not suffer a true road loss until mid-January, starting the year 6-0 in true road games – the most true road wins to open the season in the program’s Division I history – and were one of the final five teams (out of the 353 NCAA Division I basketball programs) nationally to lose a true road game.

As a team, Wright State finished the season inside the Top 20 nationally in five national categories, including turning in the seventh-highest scoring average in the country at 80.6 points per game. The Raiders pulled down the 13th-most rebounds nationally, grabbing 1,279 boards for an average of 39.97 rebounds per game, which finished as the No. 17 mark in the country. The Raiders’ 27.81 defensive rebounds per game average is No. 33 nationally and the 12.16 offensive rebounds per game average is No. 27 nationally.

Wright State’s 741 free throw attempts were the 13th-most in the NCAA this season, while the 499 free throws made were the 40th-most nationally. Overall, Wright State finished the year inside the top 50 in 11 different statistical categories as a team and was in the Top 100 nationally in 20 statistical categories.

Individually, the Raiders had four players finish the year averaging double-figure scoring totals, led by Love’s 15.9 pointers/game average. He ended the campaign averaging just shy of a double-double for the season, turning in double digit scoring performances in 21 of his 26 regular season games played, including 17 in league play. Love finished with 11 double-double performances this season, including eight in league play, and will enter the 2020-21 campaign just 26 rebounds shy of becoming program’s all-time leading rebounder and surpassing Bill Edwards’ 907 total boards.

Love’s 3.85 offensive rebounds per game average finished No. 10th in the country, while his 9.7 rebounds/game average was No. 38 nationally and his 261 total rebounds were the 86th-most in the country.

Offensively, Love became the 33rd member of Wright State’s 1,000 Point Club during non-conference play and goes into the offseason with 1,393 career points in three seasons, which is No. 15 on Wright State’s all-time scoring list. Next on the list is a pair of Raiders from the program’s early years – Bob Grote (1972–76) at No. 14 with 1,406 career points and Lyle Falknor (1972–76) at No. 13 with 1,418 career points.

Joining Love in reaching the 1,000-career point mark were seniors Gentry and Wampler. Wampler entered the Gulf Coast Showcase two points shy of the mark and left no doubt as he poured in what would turn out to be a season-high 27 points to lead the Raiders past Weber State on Nov. 25. He ends his career with 1,006 career points scored at Wright State and 1,414 career collegiate points. Gentry became the third player to reach the mark with a three-pointer in overtime at Cleveland State on Feb. 22 as part of a 16-point performance. He finished his career with 53 double-figure scoring games, including seven games with 20 or more points. Gentry tallied 1,018 career points, with all but 33 of them coming as a Raider.

The untimely finish to the season did have a bright ending this week, as the Raiders earned three National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) All-District 12 honors on Monday, March 23, led by Nagy being named the District 12 Coach of the Year. Love earned All-District 12 First Team recognition and Wampler garnered Second Team honors.

The Wright State men’s basketball team earned three All-District 12 honors recently, as the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) announced the 2019-20 NABC Division I All-District teams and coaches, as selected and voted on by member coaches of the NABC in NCAA Division I.

Wright State head coach Scott Nagy was named the District 12 Coach of the Year, while junior big man Loudon Love was named to the All-District 12 First Team and senior Bill Wampler garnered Second Team honors.

Nagy earned the NABC honor on the heels of his selection as the Horizon League’s Co-Coach of the Year selection earlier in March, becoming the first coach in Horizon League history to be named the Horizon League Coach of the Year in three straight seasons. Nagy led the Raiders to 25 victories this season, setting the new program standard for most wins in a regular season in the Division I Era, and won 15 Horizon League games, also a new program-best, on the way to Wright State’s first outright Horizon League regular season title in program history.

Love was named the Horizon League’s Player of the Year and led the Raiders with a 15.9 points per game scoring average and finished the season just shy of averaging a double-double with his 9.7 rebounds per game mark. He tallied 11 double-doubles, including eight in Horizon League play, and turned in double digit scoring performances in 21 of the 27 regular season games he played in, 17 of which came during Horizon League play, including scoring double figures in the final 15 games of the regular season.

Wampler earned his second consecutive second team All-Horizon honor this spring and averaged 15.6 points per game and shot 43 percent from the floor overall. He tallied 23 double-digit scoring games this season, including a season-high 27 points against Weber State in November as he passed the 1,000-career point milestone. Wampler ends his career with 1,006 career points scored at Wright State and 1,414 career collegiate points.
