Doing something for someone—or something---other than yourself. That’s beautiful.
And it's what the Iowa Hawkeyes’ Jordan Bohannon did in yesterday’s (2/25) game against Northwestern. It was kind of a meaningless game in a rather disappointing season for Iowa…but Jordan Bohannon was hot. In the 2nd half, Jordan Bohannon had a chance to break the school record for consecutive free throws of 34 held by Chris Street, who died in a car accident midway through the 1993 season.
But Bohannon, an Iowa native, pointed to the sky and intentionally missed the free throw that would’ve knocked Street out of the record books — with Street’s parents in attendance.
“That’s not my record to have. That record deserves to stay in his name,” Bohannon said. “It’s been on my mind for a while....life is a lot bigger than basketball.”
