An Oklahoma wrestler has now claimed five of the seven awards.
The Annapolis, Md., native 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 dual record to 10-2.
Graham began the weekend with an 11-3 major decision over Lehigh's Ben Haas for his fifth major decision of the season, and then wrestled up a weight class on Sunday to beat Virginia Tech's 174-pounder Austin Gabel in a 3-2 decision.
His win over Gabel was the 10th-straight victory for Graham since losing to Oklahoma State's No. 3 165-pounder Tyler Caldwell in December. Additionally, it marked the 40th dual victory of his four-year wrestling career.
Graham and the Sooners will be back in action this weekend when they take on Missouri on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 6:30 p.m. CT.2012-13 BIG 12 WRESTLERS OF THE WEEK/MONTH
