Hawkeyes' Marion National Wrestler of the Week

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- Hawkeye junior Montell Marion has been named TheMat.com Wrestler of the Week for Jan. 25-31. Marion, an NCAA runner-up in 2010, returned to the University of Iowa lineup in a big way as he helped the No. 8 Hawkeyes to a 22-13 win at No. 1 Penn State on Sunday in University Park, PA. The victory extended Iowa's unbeaten streak to 73 duals, and helped the team to an 11-0-1 (4-0 Big Ten) record this season.

Marion, who was wrestling in his first dual of the 2010-11 season, fought off his back to beat No. 5/6 Andrew Alton of Penn State, 11-9. Alton jumped out to a 5-0 lead near the end of the first period after taking Marion down and scoring three nearfall points. Marion chipped away at the lead in the second period before exploding for three takedowns in the third and collecting 1:16 in riding time for his first win of the season.
