    The Most Anticipated Semifinal Matches at the 2023 CKLV Invitational

    Day one at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational is in the books and what a day it was! We had upsets, excellent freshmen announced their presence on the DI scene; some were much anticipated, while others were more of a surprise. Some of the best college wrestlers in the nation showed why they’re great and we had a great day of wrestling. 

    In a few hours, there will be more. The semifinals are set and the intensity will be turned up a few more notches for that round. Looking over the matchups for the semifinals there are some great ones. I’d imagine once March comes and goes, we’ll notice some of these matches recurring in prominent rounds at the NCAA Tournament. 

    While all of the semifinals are interesting in their own right, we’ve picked out ten that we’re anticipating a little bit more than the others. 

    125 lbs

    #11 Jore Volk (Wyoming) vs. #20 Nico Provo (Stanford)

    Coming into the tournament, we identified 125 lbs as a weight class that could steer away from “going chalk” because of the sheer depth of its entrants. On that top half of the bracket that proved to be the case with a semifinal that features the fifth seed (Jore Volk) versus the ninth seed (Nico Provo). Both are sophomores who are coming off a berth at the 2023 NCAA Championships.
