Iowa State Delivers Knockout to New Orleans for Guinness World Record
This ain't afros and mattress dominoes. The battle to claim the world record for the largest game of that age-old playground basketball game you play when you don't have enough for two-on-two known as knockout is starting to resemble, well, a game of knockout. New Orleans might've been the record holder after the Final Four. But before that could even make it out through the press machine, the faithful at Iowa State University responded from the proverbial free throw line to reclaim the record they held a year ago.
The Final Four event, which pulled a then-record 422 people onto Buick Court at the Morial Convention Center, was listed as the latest winner on the website of World Records Academy this weekend. But before that release even went out, Iowa State gathered a group of 571on their now-dormant hardwood last week to take down the record.
According to the Iowa State Daily, the Cyclones were bested for the record last year by tiny Grace College. Like any college basketball team you've heard of would, Iowa State wanted to avenge their March upset.
In any case, here's video evidence of the record that was set in New Orleans. Ames may have the record, but they didn't have Dick Viatle:
