The Iowa wrestling team is off to a 3-0 start after an impressive 32-3 win over No. 6 Wisconsin. There’s still a long way to go in the season, but the win could be a sign of big things to come in Iowa City.
“Most important time of the year is March,” Iowa head coach Tom Brands said. “That Big Ten and the National Tournament. The National Tournament more importantly is the most important thing. You can make statement wins anytime, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas. You just gotta keep getting better as you go forward.”
“It doesn’t matter if it’s December 1 or March 1 or whatever,” Iowa junior Alex Marinelli said. “It doesn’t matter. You go out there and compete the same way. You got all these competitions and dual meets or whatever, but every match counts. Every match matters and it makes the season fun when you got Wisconsin coming in here at number six or number five or whatever. That was a good crowd out there.”
