Upper Iowa University recently issued the following announcement.
This week's Yoga Genesis Peacocks of the Week are Joe Smoldt of men's basketball and Chase Luensman of wrestling. Both were huge parts of the successful weeks for the men's basketball and wrestling programs. Smoldt averaged 21 points, 4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game while leading the men's basketball team to a pair of wins in Dorman Memorial Gymnasium. UIU is now in a three-way tie for second place in the NSIC South Division.

The true freshman posted a pair of wins over nationally-ranked opponents and lost his only match in a 7-5 decision to the reigning two-time NCAA Division II Champion and current No. 1 ranked wrestler.
