Spencer Lee Wins NCAA Championship

Lee, the No. 3 seed at 125, scored a takedown with three seconds left in the first period, escaped in the second, and added another takedown with 1:03 left in the third to top the fourth-seeded Suriano. Suriano escaped in the closing seconds for the final 5-1 decision.
 
"I got to hug my teammates and my family. That was an awesome feeling," Lee said. "I have the best teammates in the world. Kemerer and Sorensen and Marinelli, they're great leaders; I can name the whole team. They did a good job of making me believe in myself and I think that's why I'm here."
 
Lee is the 55th Hawkeye in program history to win an NCAA title. Those 55 champions have combined for 83 titles. He is first Hawkeye true freshman to win a national title since Lincoln McIlravy in 1993.
