Utah State Women's Basketball Goes Chillin For Charity
July 3, 2014
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's basketball head coach Jerry Finkbeiner and his staff raised money for the Kay Yow Foundation on Friday by getting a little wet by Chillin For Charity.
It has become a national trend over the last few weeks with women's basketball coaches and players being doused with cold water for charity. It's called #Chillin4Charity, where coaches and players are called out by their peers before passing on the favor and receiving their arctic bath. All proceeds go to the Kay Yow Foundation, helping raise awareness for breast cancer and funds for research.
The rules are very simple, as a coach or player calls out another someone else before they receive an ice water shower. The coach then has 48 hours to respond by taking on the cold water challenge. Head coaches that fail to do so owe the Kay Yow Foundation $250. Assistants owe $100. If a coach answers the bell, the challenging head coach owes $50; $25 for assistants.
USU head coach Jerry Finkbeiner was called out by border foe Idaho State head coach Seton Sobolewski and current TCU assistant coach and former Aggie assistant Crystal Robinson. Assistant coach Ben Finkbeiner was called out by UT Arlington assistant coach Talby Justus. In turn, Ben Finkbeiner called out New Mexico Junior College head coach Drew Sanders fellow Aggie assistant coach JC Carter, who then returned the favor and called out USU assistant coach Micah Thompson. Senior guard/forward Jasmine Porter also got in on the action as she was called out by San Diego State assistant coach Jesse Clark. Porter then called out a rival in BYU's Lexie Eaton.
