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. pic.twitter.com/pv7Q0HOQdm— Jon Miller (@hawkeyenation) February 26, 2018
Iowa sophomore point guard Jordan Bohannon was playing in a game against Northwestern where he had the potential to break a free throw record.
Up to 73-65 with just over two minutes remaining in the game, Bohannon clanked a free throw off the front of the rim. If he would have made the shot, it would have been his 35th consecutive successful free throw, surpassing the school record of Iowa's Chris Street. Street, died in a car accident in 1993 while the streak was ongoing. After Bohannon's miss, he pointed to the sky in an apparent tribute to Street.
