The No. 18 Cyclones found success Saturday, when they took on Arizona State in Tempe. Iowa State won six matches on the night, defeating the Sun Devils 21-12.

All-American Kyven Gadson led the Cyclones, getting the pin over Arizona State’s Josh DaSilveria. Gadson’s win Saturday marks his 25th straight dual win, a record for the redshirt junior.

Another highlight on the night came from redshirt freshman Quean Smith. Smith forced an overtime period after being down 1-0 for most of the match. Smith rallied, however, and scored a takedown during the extra period, winning 3-1.

With the win, Iowa State improves to 8-3 overall on the year, and 1-2 in the Big 12. The Cyclones will wrestle again next Saturday, when they travel to Cedar Falls to take on the No. 8 Panthers.
