Iowa G Jordan Bohannon sets Hawkeyes all-time mark in first half vs Ohio State
Jordan Bohannon etched his name into Iowa’s record books, taking over the top spot as the program’s all-time assist man.
On Sunday, the Hawkeyes are facing No. 4 Ohio State on the road. The first half was all Iowa with Luka Garza dominating the scoring and the Hawkeyes holding the Buckeyes to 28 points before the break.
During that first half, Bohannon officially dished his 613th assist, passing Jeff Horner’s previous mark of 612:

In the first half, Bohannon had three points, four rebounds, and three assists. The Hawkeyes are trying to boost their own seeding for the NCAA Tournament while a win would potentially put a dent in Ohio State’s hopes to land a No. 1 seed.
Along with his elite assists total, Bohannon is shooting right at 40% from three-point range during his career while averaging 11.4 points per game. Can he team up with Garza to lead Iowa on a deep March run to cap their careers?
