Twenty-five years after he was tragically killed in a car accident in the middle of his junior season, Chris Street’s legacy remains important to the Iowa men’s basketball program.

At halftime of Saturday’s game against Purdue at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, Iowa honored Street with a ceremony and video. Street's family, former teammates and former coach Tom Davis were in attendance.

Fans wore white “Chris Street Forever 40” shirts and Street’s jersey occupied a chair on the Iowa bench during the game.
