After a slow start, Iowa's Thomas Gilman stuck Oklahoma State's Nick Piccininni in the 125-pound quarterfinal of the NCAA Championships on Friday morning.

Piccininni picked up two back points early in the second period, but Gilman fired back with a takedown and two-point nearfall to go up 5-3. Capitalizing on his third-period takedown, Gilman finished the match with a pin at the 6:04 mark.
