    GREENSBORO, N.C. ? Virginia Tech?s 149-pound Brian Stephens has been named Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week after he picked up a huge win over 11th-ranked Tony D?Alie of Central Michigan last Friday night at Cassell Coliseum.

    Trailing 3-0 in the second period, Stephens used a pair of takedowns to tie up the match and then in the third period used a takedown and three near fall points to cap a 9-0 run. A late takedown by Stephens completed the 12-7 upset for the true freshman from Piqua, Ohio. Stephens was slated to redshirt this year, but is now 2-0 vs. ACC opposition.

    Two ACC matches highlight the upcoming week. North Carolina travels to NC State on Thursday night, while No. 15 Virginia Tech travels to No. 11 Maryland on Saturday in a battle of ranked teams that are currently unbeaten in conference matches. No. 24 Virginia is home on Saturday for a doubleheader against in-state foes George Mason and 25th-ranked Old Dominion. NC State is slated to visit Old Dominion on Sunday afternoon.

    It is a shame that Yates got hurt -this Stephens kid needed a RS year , he is tough as nails but so is 149-I told ISU when Yates went down not to bother trading for a 149 as this kid is for real -149 in the ACC is shaping up between Ward,Burns,and Stephens ,the favorites -Stabile and Yates are hurt and finished -we'll see if one one the young guys steps up and wins the ACC or if Ward can come down from 157 and win it .

    Stephens was ready to go this year. I was at the wrestle off where Yates could DO NOTHING and got housed by stephens. Yates was livid too. Not just mailing it in.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.
