“Fortunately Jordan is recovering well after being attacked by someone he didn’t see coming on him,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said in a statement. “We were immediately made aware of the incident. We are grateful that friends who were with Jordan at the time kept the incident from escalating. His health is our main concern.
A video circulated of the incident on Monday, with a source confirming to ESPN that the man struck in the video is Bohannon. The video showed Bohannon in a bar talking to a man when another man suddenly hit him, knocking him to the ground. A group of spectators rushed over to him and held back the other man as Bohannon tried to stand.
A school official told ESPN that a police investigation was “ongoing,” but no charges have been filed.
Bohannon, the brother of former Wisconsin star Jason Bohannon, is the school’s all-time 3-point leader with 364. After averaging 10.6 PPG for the Hawkeyes last season, he announced that ‘he would take advantage of the NCAA rule granting each athlete one additional year of eligibility due to the pandemic and return for a sixth season.
He received a medical red shirt for the 2019-20 season, despite missing most of the season with hip surgery.
