Leistikow: Four great minutes, one thrilling victory for Iowa basketball

"Captain Clutch" Jordan Bohannon's 3-pointer capped a comeback from 15 points down in the final four-plus minutes as Iowa stunned Northwestern, 80-79.

  Iowa point guard Jordan Bohannon rises up for the game-winning 3-pointer over Northwestern guard Anthony Gaines on Sunday at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

  Iowa made its last seven field-goal attempts in the final 2:48, starting with Bohannon’s first 3 of the game.

  CLOSE Iowa forward Tyler Cook (17 points, 11 rebounds) said there was relief after the Hawkeyes escaped Northwestern, 80-79.

  Then Iowa did the smart thing: After playing solid defense, it capitalized on easier 2-pointers on offense, on three straight possessions — close-quarters shots from Wieskamp, Bohannon and Moss to chip it down to 78-77.
