The University of Iowa’s loss in the National Invitation Tournament has been blamed on the absence of stellar senior Whitman Studley, who missed the game while attempting to shuck the Chrysler Building. Studley apparently mistook the iconic piece of the New York City skyline for a large ear of corn.
This past Thursday, Baylor University’s Men’s basketball team was crowned champions of the NIT in New York City’s Madison Square Garden, defeating the University of Iowa 74-54. Studley, Iowa’s top scorer and rebounder, missed the entire game.
The prolific power forward was found on the 29th floor of the Chrysler Building while the game was still in progress. Studley was attempting to shuck third tallest building in New York City because he apparently thought it was a massive ear of corn.
