Grappler Guide to the NCAA Tournament

By Jordan Thomas, 03/10/22, 7:30PM EST


Conference tournaments are completed, brackets have been released, and we are set for the 2022 NCAA Championships. The tournament is scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, March 17-19, at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Mich. The University of Michigan is a co-host for the event with the Detroit Sports Commission.

The last time the NCAA Championships were held in Michigan was in 2007 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Michigan took 6th in those championships, while Paul Donahoe (Davison HS, Nebraska) won an NCAA title. Check out other previous national champions and All-Americans from the state of Michigan in this year's Grappler Guide (link above).
