Badgers DL makes half-court shot for charity
Wisconsin defensive lineman Warren Herring was one of thousands of Wisconsin students to take part in the Charity Stripe Challenge, benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer and he stuck a shot that cost Wisconsin men’s basketball coach Bo Ryan a $1,000 donation to charity. Get the details and the YouTube clip in the rest of this post.
Bo and his wife Kelly Ryan donated $1 to the American Cancer Society for every student that attended the Thursday event. Then each student could help boost that total by making some shots. Made free throws brought $10 apiece while half-court shots brought $1,000. Get more details on the event at UWBadgers.com.
Our colleague ESPN.com Big Ten blogger Adam Rittenberg reports that “more than 1,600 students attended the event, and Ryan ended up writing a check for $41,279.” Read his blog post here.
