MADISON, Wis.-- The NCAA Division I Wrestling selection committee rolled out the seeds and brackets Wednesday for the 2013 NCAA Wrestling Championships, which will take place March 21-23 at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa.

Wisconsin will be represented at the championships by its three wrestlers that automatically qualified during the Big Ten championships: Tyler Graff (133 lbs.), Jackson Hein (197 lbs.) and Connor Medbery (Hwt.).

Graff will be the No. 3-seed in the 133 lbs., bracket and will wrestle the winner of the pigtail match between Maryland's Geoffrey Alexander and Cal Poly's Devon Lotito in Thursday's first round.

Hein is unseeded in the 197 lbs., bracket and will face the No. 12 seed, Missouri's Brent Haynes, in the first round.

Medbery is the seventh-seeded heavyweight and drew Virginia Tech's David Malone in the first round. Of the three UW qualifiers, only

Medbery has matched-up with his first-round opponent previously this season, defeating Malone by decision, 3-2, on Nov. 18 at the Hokie Duals in Blacksburg, Va.
