Weird: Iowa walks off floor after North Dakota plays to buzzer
The University of Iowa basketball team won handily Tuesday night at home vs. North Dakota 84-73. And for some reason Cyclones coach Fran McCaffery was not happy.
The reason: (At least we think)....with just under 5-seconds left in the game the Fighting Hawks stole the ball from McCaffery's boys as they were running out the clock. And then tried to score.
McCaffery apparently took offense at the idea though we suspect North Dakota was just playing to the buzzer....

Fran McCaffery wasn't a fan, so he had Iowa walk off the court. https://t.co/PLkItzgxq0
We aren't sure exactly what the offense here is, though the Vegas spread on the game was 11-points. Don't know why that would matter--it's probably just a coincidence. Yet McCaffery--even after the game in his presser--was still mad about it.
Is this a case of a "Sore Winner"?
