Bohannon’s three saves Iowa from upset
Jordan Bohannon hit a three-pointer with three-tenths of a second remaining and No. 20 Iowa rallied from a 13-point deficit and beat Northwestern 80-79 on Sunday night in Iowa City, Iowa.
Bohannon scored his first points with 5:28 to go on a jumper and finished with 15 points with 3-of-4 shooting from three-point range, including the winner for Iowa (19-5, 8-5, Big Ten).
“It’s one of those things where if it ended the way that it did, you know (Bohannon) is going to make the shot,” Iowa coach Fran Mccaffery said. “He’s fearless. That’s why he’s got to be on the floor.”
Freshman Joe Wieskamp scored 21 points, including a three-pointer that was part of the Hawkeyes’ comeback with less than six minutes remaining. Tyler Cook had 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Isaiah Moss scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting.
