IOWA CITY, Iowa — The first 1,500 fans to arrive for the Iowa-Penn State men’s basketball game on Sunday afternoon received a Peter Jok bobblehead doll. Iowa gave out the bobbleheads on Jok’s Senior Day game.
Jok will take part in Senior Day festivities, along with forward Dale Jones, before the 1:01 p.m., ET, tip against the Nittany Lions. He is a three-year starter and earned second-team all-conference honors as a junior and is in the midst of a Big Ten Player of the Year-caliber senior season. Jok is averaging 20.1 points and 5.8 rebounds.
He was twice named the Big Ten Player of the Week this season and set the program single-game record with 22 made free throws against Indiana on Feb. 21. His .924 single-season free-throw percentage is on pace to break the Big Ten record set by Indiana’s Steve Alford (.921).
