AK Drains Free Throws For A Good Cause

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy has been making one free throw after another and has moved into the "Elite Eight" of the Shots from the Heart head coaches' free throw contest.

Organized by CollegeInsider.com and the Skip Prosser Foundation, the "Shots from the Heart" tournament was created to increase awareness for the growing problem of heart disease and to raise money to benefit the Skip Prosser Foundation. Further promoting the tournament and educational aspects of heart disease is the American Heart Association, which will be a beneficiary of the Skip Prosser Foundation.

Kennedy is one of 64 coaches participating in the tournament, and he has drained nearly all of his free throws during each round to advance to the final eight. On the way, he has defeated Ben Jacobson of Northern Iowa, Bryce Drew of Valparaiso and Xavier's Chris Mack in head-to-head matchups.

Next up for Kennedy is a matchup with Arizona's Sean Miller with a chance to move to the "Final Four." The other six head coaches still left are Illinois' Bruce Weber, Oklahoma State's Travis Ford, Albany's Will Brown, Iowa State's Fred Hoiberg, Detroit's Ray McCallum and UNC-Wilmington's Buzz Peterson.

Former Ole Miss point guard and assistant coach Michael White, who is currently the head man at Louisiana Tech, and current Rebel assistant Bill Armstrong also participated in the head coach and assistant coach tournaments, respectively.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
