Iowa’s Jordan Bohannon will have one more season with the Hawkeyes.
The program announced on Tuesday that Bohannon’s hardship waiver has been approved by the B1G, allowing him to play one more season at Iowa. The guard appeared in 10 contests for the Hawkeyes last season before undergoing season-ending surgery. He averaged 8.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per contest in the short time he spent on the floor.
Bohannon is the school’s leader in made 3-point shots (284). He’s scored 1,310 points, dished 504 assists, grabbed 250 rebounds and recorded 82 steals during his time in Iowa City.
Bohannon’s return is huge new for Iowa, which has already received news from Joe Wieskamp that he’ll be returning to the Hawkeyes for the upcoming season, as well. Reigning B1G Player of the Year and first-team All-American Luka Garza has entered his name in the NBA Draft, but many scouts suggest a return to college for one more year would benefit him greatly.
If all three players are back on the floor, Iowa will be one of the favorites to win the B1G next season and potentially be a Final Four contender.
Last year, the Hawkeyes finished with a 20-11 record overall and were 11-9 in B1G contests.
