Broncos Wrap Reno TOC

Dec. 21, 2014

RENO, Nev. - Boise State sent 18 wrestlers to the Reno Tournament of Champions Sunday, at the Reno Events Center.

The Broncos had individuals competing in eight of the 10 weight classes, but did not place anyone.

Cody Dixon, who moved up to 197 pounds for the tournament, won his first two matches to reach the quarterfinals, but dropped his final two to miss the podium. After defeating Oklahoma's Brad Johnson (6-5), Dixon upset the tournament's No. 2 seed, Austin Schafer of Oklahoma State, 8-5.

Dixon fell to Cal State Bakersfield's Matt Williams in the quarterfinals via fall (6:49), then dropped his first match in the consolation bracket.

At 174 pounds, Austin Dewey dropped his opening bout, but won three-straight in the wrestleback before his second loss. Included were a pair of victories over Pac-12 foes - an 11-2 major decision over Stanford's Dylan Morris, and a 5-2 decision over Oregon State's Joe Latham.

Following his third-straight win, Dewey fell to Oklahoma State's Jordan Rogers (10-3), finishing the tournament one victory shy of placing.

Boise State finished 17th of 23 teams with 16.5 points.
