Jared Jeffries watches Hoosiers clinch outright title #iubb

IOWA CITY, Iowa — A familiar face was waiting to greet Yogi Ferrell and Troy Williams after Tuesday’s game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Tuesday.

There was Jared Jeffries, himself a member of IU’s 2002 shared Big Ten title team and national runner-up, standing in the tunnel that led from the floor to the locker room area backstage. Jeffries approached Ferrell and Williams for handshakes and back pats, much to both players’ apparent delight.

“I was surprised he wasn’t on his fishing show, but I guess it’s winter,” Ferrell said with a smile. “I was a little surprised to see him there.”

Here’s a brief video of Jeffries, the host of Outdoor Channel’s “Modern Fishing”, waiting to greet Ferrell and Williams on Tuesday in Iowa City:
