UVU wrestling: Wolverine junior Josh Wilson qualifies for NCAA Championships
For those who didn't qualify at the regional, the NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee will meet in person to select the remaining 40 at-large qualifiers, who will be announced on Wednesday. The at-large selections will be based on the following criteria: head-to-head competition, qualifying event placement, quality wins, results against common opponents, winning percentage, RPI, coaches ranking and the number of matches contested at that weight class. Last year the WWC received two additional at-large selections.
This year's three-day NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships will take place March 15-17 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. For ticket information visit Ticketmaster.com or call the Scottrade Center ticket office at 314-622-5400.
