Penn State Wrestling’s Nick Lee Named Big Ten Wrestler Of The Week

Penn State’s 141-pounder No. 2 Nick Lee was Big Ten Wrestler of the Week for last week after a huge weekend in which he went 2-0 against a pair of top-10 opponents.

Lee has been nothing short of unstoppable so far for the Nittany Lions this season. The junior is 16-0 on the year and has scored bonus points in 15 out of his 16 bouts. He is coming off a very impressive weekend as No. 2 Penn State gained two big victories on the road against No. 4 Wisconsin and No. 6 Minnesota.

When the Nittany Lions traveled to Wisconsin Friday night, No. 7 Tristan Moran had no answer for Lee, who’s ranked No. 2 in the weight class. Lee majored Moran 14-1 in a dominating fashion. Just two days later, Lee came up big again against No. 4 Mitch McKee, earning a fall in the first period.

Lee has really embraced the grind and stepped into a leadership role for Penn State this season. After placing at the NCAA Championships the past two years, Lee is a favorite to climb to the top of the podium in March.

Penn State’s stud will face his toughest test of the year this Saturday when No. 1 Luke Pletcher and No. 3 Ohio State visit the Bryce Jordan Center to face the No. 2 Nittany Lions.

The dual between No. 2 Penn State and the No. 3 Buckeyes will be on Saturday, February 15 in the Bryce Jordan Center. The match is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
