    Default Chris Diaz ACC Wrestler of the Week 2/9

    GREENSBORO, N.C. ? Virginia Tech 141-pound junior Chris Diaz has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Wrestler of the Week after posting a wild, last-second win in a battle between nationally- ranked opponents during the 15th-ranked Hokies match at eighth-ranked Lehigh.

    The 10th-ranked Diaz picked up a takedown with one second left in the match to capture a 4-3 win over 17th-ranked Seth Ciasulli. Ciasulli got a first-period takedown and a stall warning point against Diaz to take a 3-2 lead. But Diaz kept fighting and was awarded the two points at the buzzer much to dismay of the Lehigh faithful, beginning a run of three straight weight-class wins by the Hokies. Diaz, a native of Camden, Del., improved to 25-3 on the season and 18-1 in dual matches.

    I picked up Diaz out of free agency earlier this season and he has been a great help to my team. Hope to see him do well in Omaha.
