Chicago Sun-Times - - OBITUARIES -

Jor­dan Bo­han­non hit a three­p­ointer from 23 feet with six­tenths of a sec­ond re­main­ing as No. 20 Iowa stunned North­west­ern 80-79 on Sun­day night in Iowa City.

The Wild­cats (12-11, 3-9 Big Ten) led 72-57 af­ter Der­erk Par­don hit a layup with 4:30 re­main­ing, and they led 76-65 with 2:09 left af­ter Ryan

Vic Law had 24 points and 10 re­bounds to lead the Wild­cats.

‘‘We didn’t get the stops we needed, in­clud­ing on the last play.’’ NU coach

Chris Collins said. ‘‘To come up short like that is re­ally a tough feel­ing.’’

In the fi­nal race of her ca­reer, skier Lind­sey Vonn won the bronze medal in a world cham­pi­onship down­hill race in Ares, Swe­den. The three­time Olympic medal­ist, in­clud­ing a gold in the down­hill in 2010 in Van­cou­ver, was five days re­moved from a crash in a su­per-G race.
