He shut him down.

Iowa basketball is struggling right now. The Hawkeyes have already endured a four-game losing streak and now sit at 5-6 on the season.

Sophomore guard Jordan Bohannon has been a bright spot, averaging 12.5 points per game (second-best on the team) and dishing out a team-high 4.5 assists per contest. He's also shooting 46 percent from three-point range.

Give Bohannon credit for standing with his teammates too. Check out how he shut down a Hawkeye fan who took a shot at the team on Twitter.

That's perfect.

Twitter trolls and fan criticism are unfortunately part of the student-athlete experience these days. Kudos to Bohannon for handling this the way he did.
