Oklahoma's Kendric Maple has been named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week after starting the 2012-13 season with a 17-0 record. It is Maple's third weekly award of the year. 

WRESTLER OF THE WEEK
Kendric Maple, Oklahoma, Jr., 141 pounds, Wichita, Kan.
Following a two-week break, Maple returned to the mat with a stellar performance at the 2012 Midlands Championships in Evanston, Ill. The redshirt junior went undefeated at the prestigious event with a 6-0 record on the weekend. En route to claiming his second Midlands Title in as many years, Maple topped two top-five opponents in No. 4 Mitchell Port (Edinboro) with a 14-11 decision and No. 3 BJ Futrell (Illinois) with a 5-1 decision.

Next, Maple claimed a 12-0 major decision over Iowa State's No. 14 Luke Goettl. His performance helped lead OU to its fifth dual victory of the 2012-13 season and sparked a four-match win streak against the Cyclones.

With his performances at Midlands and against Iowa State, Maple remains undefeated in 2012-13 with a 17-0 overall record and 7-0 mark in dual competition.
