NCAA to Stream Wrestling Selection Show
Liberty's six national qualifiers, along with 300-plus other collegiate wrestlers from around the country, will learn their postseason fate tonight, when the NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee announces this year's national championship field.

The NCAA will announce the 330 student-athletes who have been selected to participate in the 2010 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships via a web stream selection show on NCAA.com, tonight at 6 p.m. (EST).

NCAA Division I Wrestling Committee chair, Brad Traviolia, will provide the show's introduction while Pat Tocci, Director of Administration and Public Relations for the National Wrestling Coaches Association, will serve as the host, unveiling each of the 10 brackets in the championships field.
