IOWA CITY, IA - Tom Brands made his Carver-Hawkeye Arena debut as head coach of the Iowa wrestling team Saturday afternoon, leading the Hawkeyes to a 39-3 victory over Arizona State. The Hawkeyes improve to 2-0 with the win, handing the Sun Devils (2-1) their first dual loss of the season. A boisterous crowd of 4,905 turned out for the meet.

Iowa went 9-1 against Arizona State, which was a great improvement over Tuesday night's dual at Northern Iowa, where the Hawkeyes went 5-5. Saturday's only loss was at 157 pounds, where second-ranked senior Sun Devil Brian Stith scored a takedown in sudden victory to defeat unranked Iowa redshirt freshman Ryan Morningstar, 3-1.

Scoring team bonus points for the Hawkeyes were seniors Mario Galanakis (133 - pin), Alex Grunder (149 - technical fall) and Eric Luedke (174 - major decision), junior Matt Fields (Hwt. - forfeit) and redshirt freshman Phillip Keddy (184 - pin). Junior and second-ranked Mark Perry picked up his 50th career win with an 8-4 decision over Arizona State's Patrick Pitsch at 165 to end the dual.

Iowa (2-0) will host intra-state rival Iowa State (1-0) December 3 at 4 p.m. in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The winning team will receive two points in the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series. Iowa currently leads the 2006-07 series, 7-2, with wins in football and soccer.
