Jordan Bohannon’s troll job was absolutely perfect last night.
Playing for the last time in Hilton Coliseum, and after spending the week getting into it with former Iowa State star Georges Niang on twitter, Bohannon blew a kiss to the Iowa State student section after hitting two free throws to put the Hawkeyes up by 14 with less than a minute left:
After the game ended, Bohannon went a step further.
He signed his shoes “To ISU, thanks for the memz :)” and left them on the court at the three point line:
And entirely perfect.
But what made the gesture mean that much more is that this may actually be the end of Bohannon’s season.
This was the tenth game that the Hawkeyes played, the maximum that Bohannon can play and still take a medical redshirt for this season. The senior guard is dealing with a painful hip injury that was initially expected to keep him out this season. He opted to give it a go at the start of the year to A) see if he is capable of playing through the pain, and B) to help get his team in a position where they can earn an at-large bid whether or not he is on the floor.
He’s done just that.
So if this was the end for Bohannon’s senior season, he went out about as well as you possibly can.
