Greathouse scored a thrilling, come-from-behind upset victory against No. 8 Kevin Ward at 157 pounds in Michigan State's dual meet with top-ranked Oklahoma State last Sunday. The Spartan junior trailed 3-0 late in the period, when he scored two takedowns, notching a pair of near-fall points on the second takedown. Greathouse held Ward down for the remainder of the third for the 6-4 victory. With the win, Greathouse improved his record to 5-2 on the season.

This is the second Wrestler of the Week award for the Spartans this season.  Nick Simmons earned the first award of the year on Nov. 9.
