Grappling for a title

Kyven Gadson

At 10 a.m. Saturday morning, the doors of Hilton Coliseum will open to Big 12 Conference wrestling fans for this year's championships.

Four teams -- Iowa State, Oklahoma, West Virginia and two-time defending champion Oklahoma State -- will be vying for the league trophy. Wrestlers compete in 10 weight classes for individual titles. The Cyclones, whose last team title was a share of the crown in 2009, have two defending Big 12 champs in 197-pound senior Kyven Gadson (pictured) and 184-pound sophomore Lelund Weatherspoon.

The morning session begins with semifinals at 11 a.m. and third-place matches at 12:30 p.m. Free video streaming will be available live on Doors open at 5 p.m. for the evening session, with championship matches at 7 p.m. The finals will be streamed live by FoxSportsGo (free for subscribers to some TV providers).

All-session tickets are $20 ($15 youth). Single-session tickets go on sale Thursday, March 5, and are $10 ($5 youth) for the morning session, and $20 ($15 youth) for the evening session. Photo courtesy of athletics communications.
