Drew, Powell to Participate in Shots From the Heart

Thursday, November 10, 2011

Valparaiso men’s basketball head coach Bryce Drew and assistant coach Roger Powell Jr. will both be participating in the 2nd Annual Shots From the Heart Tournament, in benefit of the Skip Prosser Foundation.

The Shots From the Heart Tournament was started last year to help create more awareness for the growing problem of heart disease and to raise money to benefit the Skip Prosser Foundation.  The tournament features two 64-coach fields (one bracket of head coaches and one bracket of assistant coaches) participating in a free throw shooting contest.  Each coach, at his convenience, will shoot 25 free throws, with the coach with the most makes advancing in the bracket.

The first round runs through Nov. 30, with the tournament progressing until it culminates with the championship in February.  Drew is matched up against Randy Bennett of St. Mary’s in the first round, with a possible second round matchup against Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy looming.  Meanwhile, Powell will face Cornell assistant Mike Blaine in the first round.
