Add this one to the local news blooper reel. After the incredible game-winning shot that lifted Iowa over Indiana in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament, an NBC affiliate made a hilariously unfortunate typo.

As a clip played of senior guard Jordan Bohannon speaking to the media after the game; one letter gave his "shot" a whole new meaning.

Everyone laughed it off, (except maybe the news director) but we've all made our share of spelling errors in this business. Some are are just more... "noticeable" than others.

That doesn't take away from the miraculous shot that Bohannon hit though.

With just 1.1 ticks left on the clock, the Iowa-born guard heaved up a shot that banked in to give the Hawkeyes an 80-77 advantage; sending them to the final round of the Big Ten tourney where No. 9 Purdue awaits.

It's a shot that won't soon be forgotten in the greater Iowa area. And probably a gaffe that will be the butt of jokes in the newsroom for some time as well.

(No pun intended).
