Iowa sophomore point guard Jordan Bohannon purposefully missed a free throw during Sunday’s win against Northwestern, even though the team was trying to protect a late lead, and it would have been his 35th straight free throw made.
Here is the free throw Jordan Bohannon missed on purpose that would have broken Chris Street’s record. And then a minute later, back to the line, you see his homage to Street. He made them both.
Coolest miss you'll ever see. @JordanBo_3 needed one more free throw to break the late Chris Street's @IowaHoops record of 34 consecutive made free throws.

“That’s not my record to have,” Bohannon said after the game. “That record deserves to stay in his name.”
Bohannon, who finished Sunday’s game with 25 points, said he’s gotten to know Street’s family over the last couple years. Street’s parents attended the game and embraced Bohannon on the court after its conclusion, according to the Des Moines Register.

You have to appreciate a feel good story in college hoops, especially as of late.
