COLUMBIA — Missouri’s three remaining wrestlers in the NCAA tournament's championship bracket were eliminated in the semifinals Friday in Des Moines, Iowa.

Dom Bradley, the top seed in the 285-pound division, suffered just his second loss of the season in a 3-1 upset against Northwestern’s unseeded Michael McMullan.

Alan Waters, the top seed in the 125-pound division, jumped out to an early 1-0 lead against Penn State's Nicholas Megaludis, but he was eventually upset in the second overtime by the No. 4 seed.

Unseeded sophomore Drake Houdashelt lost to Boise State's No. 2 Jason Chamberlain in the 149-pound division.

Bradley, Waters and Houdashelt secured All-America honors with wins in the quarterfinals Friday morning. Seniors Mike Larson and Nathan McCormick also were named to the All-American team in the 184-pound and 133-pound divisions, respectively.
