Oklahoma senior Patrick "Bubby" Graham has been named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week after picking up two victories over the weekend. It is the first career honor for Graham.
WRESTLER OF THE WEEK
Patrick Graham, Oklahoma, Sr., 165 pounds, Annapolis, Md.
Graham picked up two wins in a span of three days as Oklahoma took on No. 14 Lehigh and No. 9 Virginia Tech. Although the Sooners dropped both matches, Graham improved his season record to 18-2 and his dual record to 10-2. Sunday's win over Austin Gabel marked Graham's tenth dual victory of the season, and 40th of his career.
The senior started the weekend with an 11-3 major decision over Lehigh's Ben Haas for his fifth major decision of the season. Graham then wrestled up a weight class on Sunday as he beat 174-pounder Austin Gabel in a 3-2 decision. The victory was Graham's 10th straight since losing to Oklahoma State's No. 3 165-pounder Tyler Caldwell in December.
