'Excuses are for wusses': Iowa's Spencer Lee wins his third consecutive national title on torn ACL
March 21, 2021


ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Back in 2018, when Spencer Lee won his first NCAA title at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, former Iowa heavyweight Sam Stoll grabbed the microphone during the post-match press conference and asked one question:

"Spencer Lee, why are you the baddest man on the planet?"

Lee laughed.

"I don't know," he responded. "I don't have an answer for that. I'll take your word for it. How's that?"

The legend has only grown since then, and on Saturday night here at the Enterprise Center, Lee authored perhaps the most impressive chapter of his spectacular college career thus far.
