    Tonight, we have a great schedule of duals on tap! While you’re getting ready to try and pay attention to all 21 duals, we’ve put together a list of one bout per dual to pay a little more attention to. Whether it’s a matchup between highly-ranked wrestlers, two top conference contenders, or another in a long series of bouts between two familiar opponents, there’s some reason to watch.

    Friday’s Duals

    Blair Orr (The Citadel) vs. Drew West (Gardner-Webb) 125: There’s a clear-cut top-two in the SoCon at this weight. Both are veterans that are capable of threatening and perhaps stealing an NCAA spot from the current leaders.

    #16 Brayton Lee (Minnesota) vs. #19 Derek Gilcher (Indiana) 157: On one hand we have a guy that’s coming off a season-ending injury in 2021-22 (Lee) and has had a rough go of things thus far. The other features one of the conference’s breakout wrestlers (Gilcher) who is surging and a winner of 10 of the last 11.
