Still, keeping NIU’s ranking inmind, head coach Barry Davis knows not to take this weekend’s match lightly.”UNI’s got a good coach in Brad Penrith,” Davis said. “Hisguys will be ready. This will be a big match for them, down at UNI. We’ve justgot to be ready.”Wisconsin enters the dual with seven wrestlers ranked in thetop 20 nationally of their respective weight classes. Among the notables areNo. 3 Craig Henning at 157 pounds, No. 4 Dallas Herbst at 197 pounds and No. 11Kyle Massey, who wrestles in the heavyweight division.NorthernIowa has three ranked grapplers of its own, asC.J. Ettelson is ranked No. 10 at 141 pounds,Moza Fay is No. 5 at 165 pounds andAlex Dolly is No. 16 at 174 pounds.”The thing withNorthern Iowa is they always wrestle us tough,” Massey said. “We’re one oftheir featured matches every year. So they’re always coming out, raring to goand ready to bring their best game against us.”Wisconsin is comingoff an impressive showing last weekend at the Cliff Keen Invite in Las Vegas.The Badgers finished fifth out of 50 teams competing, scoring 107.5 teampoints. Three of the top five teams at the invite came from the Big Ten, withMichigan taking the title and Ohio State placing third. Herbst improved hisseason record to 13-0 while taking the individual title at 197 pounds. Henningand Massey also finished well, taking third in their respective weight classes.”I think I wrestledwell,” Herbst said of his first-place performance. “Friday, I wasn’t feelinggood. I wrestled well, but I was still feeling tight, not really lose like Icould have been. But going into Saturday I just felt really good. On the mat, Ifelt prepared and ready to be there.”This year will be the 36th meeting of the two teams.Wisconsin leads the overall series 19-16-1. Last year, the Panthers came intothe Field House expecting to win, only to leave empty handed with a 24-10 lossas the Badgers took seven of the 10 matches.Once the Badgers return home late Saturday night, they havea short turnaround as they head to Ohio State Monday for their Big Ten opener.Despite the fact the core of the Big Ten season is still a month and a halfaway, Massey knows that this team builds off the little successes that occuralong the way.”We had some prettysuccessful guys this weekend, but we always have kind of wrestled a little bitbetter when we’re heading into a dual meet,” Massey said.”It’s going to benice to kind of change pace back into our dual meet team and get back into theflow of building off of each other matches because that’s when we’re at ourbest.”last_img read more
