Jordan Bohannon Intentionally Misses Record Breaking Free Throw [VIDEO]
The Iowa Hawkeyes ended a disappointing season Sunday night with a 77-70 victory over Northwestern. Jordan Bohannon made 7 three's and scored 25 points. But on this night, he will be remembered for the shot he MISSED.
Bohannon made his 34th consecutive free throw which tied the record held by the late Chris Street. Street died in an automobile accident in 1993. He never had a chance to attempt another free throw after that fatal night.
Bohannon had a chance to beat Street's record late in the second half of Sunday night's game. He got to the line and the arena went silent. He looked at his family in the stands, pointed to the sky, and missed the shot..... it wasn't even close.
After the game, Bohannon admitted to the Big Ten Network that he missed the shot intentionally. He wanted to keep the record in Street's name. I was working on the broadcast, and I captured the video of his missed shot.
Bohannon told BTN, "That's not my record to have. That record deserves to stay in his name." Here's what Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said after the game:
Jordan Bohannon is a class act. This will be an Iowa game we will remember for many, many years. It may have been a rough season, but Sunday night made us all feel a lot better about the season.
The victory snapped a 6-game skid for Iowa, who will now prepare for the Big Ten Tournament later this week in New York City.
