James Green, who will be junior on Nebraska this fall, went 1-1 Thursday while representing the United States in freestyle wrestling competition at the World University Games in Kazan, Russia.

Competing at the 66-kilogram class (145 pounds), Green defeated Finland’s Petteri Martikainen 4-0 in his opening match. Martikainen had placed fifth at the 2012 World University championships. Green then was eliminated from medal contention in the quarterfinals with a 3-1 loss to Kyrgyzstan’s Ulukman Mamatov.
