The biggest upset in college sports involving Purdue Friday evening might not have taken place on the hardwood.
In the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in Tulsa, Iowa wrestler Spencer Lee suffered a shocking upset loss in the 125-pound semifinals to Purdue's Matt Ramos. Lee is considered one of the most dominant collegiate wrestlers in history, and Ramos's last-second pin denied him a record-tying fourth straight national championship.
As unthinkable as Ramos ending Lee's 58-match winning streak was, his mother's reaction to the stunning defeat was even more eyebrow-raising.
Cathy Lee — a flyweight judoka once upon a time who won a silver medal at the 1991 Pan American Games in Havana — destroyed her glasses in full view of ESPN's television cameras.
Despite Lee's unexpected loss, the Hawkeyes are in second place as a team entering the third day of competition, trailing only Penn State. Iowa has won 24 team national championships in total, the second most in Division I history behind Oklahoma State.
