Bohannon named to Big 10 All-Freshman team
by Brandon Leonard Correspondent · March 9th, 2017

University of Iowa freshman and Linn-Mar alum Jordan Bohannon had to adapt quick and grow up in a hurry for the Hawkeyes men's basketball team. His hard work and performance on the court earned him Big 10 All-Freshman team honors this past week along with fellow freshman

big-man Tyler Cook.

Bohannon has started 25 of 31 possible games for Iowa this season and sits second behind star player Peter Jok in minutes per game. The former Lion averages just under 10 points per game and recently set a University of Iowa record for most three-pointers in a season by a freshman student-athlete.

Recently, Bohannon has been a thorn in the side of Iowa's Big 10 competition. Against nationally-ranked Maryland, Bohannon drilled eight of his 10 three-point attempts to lead the Hawkeyes with 24 points and five assists in a 83-69 road victory over the Terrapins.

Iowa currently holds a record of 18-13 overall and finished Big 10 regular season play with a 10-8 conference record as they head into the Big 10 Tournament this week in Washington, D.C. The Hawks earned the seventh seed and will play the Indiana Hoosiers in their quarterfinal matchup on Thursday at 5:30 p.m on ESPN2. The Hoosiers enter the contest with a record of 17-14 overall and 7-11 in conference play. Iowa won the only matchup between the two schools by a 96-90 final score in overtime back on February 21, at Carver Hawkeye Arena.

The winner of the Iowa/Indiana game will move on to play second-seeded Wisconsin on Friday night at 5:30 p.m on the Big 10 Network.
