Earlier this season, senior student manager Jack Devlin inspired a March Madness-worthy celebration for the Iowa men's basketball team on Senior Night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The fourth-year student in UI REACH—a transition program for students with intellectual, cognitive, and learning disabilities—sank a half-court shot during a timeout and was swarmed by the entire Hawkeye team and fellow managers as the crowd roared. Coach Fran McCaffery punctuated the heartwarming moment by chest bumping Devlin and wrapping him in a big hug.
Every senior is getting their moment on Senior Night, even student manager Jack Devlin. Watch Iowa swarm Jack after he hit a half-court shot during a timeout. pic.twitter.com/sQI2eEtlnH— Robert Read (@Robert_Read34) March 1, 2022
