It would have been a great college prank, but the Iowa athletic department crushed it.

The Illinois student spirit group "Orange Krush" had its order for 200 tickets to the men's basketball game at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Saturday canceled Wednesday after Iowa discovered the person who made the purchase falsely claimed the tickets were for a Boys and Girls Club in Champaign.

Iowa issued a refund for $5,400 and donated the 200 tickets to the Boys and Girls Club of Cedar Rapids.
