    No. 2 ISU Falls to No. 1 Iowa; Best Finish Since 2000

    CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – No. 2 Iowa State fell to top-seeded Iowa 19-12 in the finals of the NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals Sunday evening in the UNI Dome. The team runner-up finish is the best performance by the Cyclones since winning the event in 2000. Iowa State finished third in last year’s National Duals. ISU posted a 3-1 record in the tournament this weekend, and stands at 6-2 in duals this season.

    The Cyclones won four of the 10 contested weights against Iowa.
    “We are going to keep working,” ISU head coach Kevin Jackson said. “We are going to be fine. In March, we are going to be at our best. We’ve got to finalize a couple positions and situations, but we are continuing to get better.”

    #2 lost to #1. However, #2 from last year's NCAAs got beat by #3 (us).

    Oh come on. First year coach with a banged up team, and not to mention a huge hole at 157 with the departure of Cyler. Two matches could and should have went the other way. I'm stoked with KJ at the helm and can only see us improving as we move on toward nationals. We also have kicked the butts of some very good programs already this season. Keep the faith man.

    Improvement over last year, seeded 1st finished 3rd, this year seeded 2nd finished 2nd. I guess perspective and we need quit judging everything by how we do against Iowa.

    How true. Second to any other team, and it'd be a totally different attitude. Right now, Iowa is the only benchmark to improve upon. I think Cael did us a favor. I like the improvement we have seen in guys like Long, Ward, and Jensen. Even Reader finally getting over the hump in beatng Morningstar. Look forward to a great run in the NCAAs this year.
