Big 12 Wrestling team scoring

In the angus preview post below, team scoring was glossed over a bit, so I thought I might take this opportunity to shed a little more light on that.

Teams have the opportunity to score points in a variety of ways in this tournament. They are awarded points for a wrestler placing (10-7-4-2-0 1st thru 5th). They gain an additional point for winning a semi-final match and 1/2 point for a first-round consolation win. And finally, bonus points are available: 2 for a fall, 1 1/2 for tech fall with back points and 1 for tech fall without back points or a major decision.
