Head Coach: Lute Olson


Referee Jim Bain called a foul on Hawkeye forward Kevin Boyle with the score tied at 65 and no time left on the clock. Videotapes showed Boyle a dozen feet from the action. Bain later said that the foul should have been called on Iowa center Greg Stokes. The foul call sent Purdue's Dan Palombizio to the free throw line where he hit the first free throw to give Purdue a 66-65 win and knock Iowa out of the Big Ten championship race.

Lute Olson When officials can come out and steal basketball games from young people as that crew did, they deserve to be in jail - not out working games. There's no question. The game was stolen from us...I will personally carry the tape in (to the Big Ten office), and that crew (the officials: Bain, Dan Edwards and Ralph Rosser) had better be with me. We can go through it play by play.
