The Liberty women's basketball team recently participated in the #Chillin4Charity Cold Water Challenge to support and bring awareness to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Head coach Carey Green, along with assistants Alexis Sherard, Andy Bloodworth and Brittany Hoyt, answered the challenge by having ice water dumped on their heads by their players.

#Chillin4Charity is an initiative started by the University of Arizona women's basketball team and head coach Niya Butts, to raise awareness and donations for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. The challenge was issued to the rest of the Pac-12 coaches and has gained momentum from there, reaching across the nation as coaches continue to challenge others.

Rules for the challenge are that all parties have 48 hours from the release to answer the challenge. If it goes unmet, that party owes the Kay Yow Foundation $250 for head coaches and $100 for assistants. If the challenge is met, then whoever issued the challenge owes the foundation $50 for head coaches and $25 for assistants.

Green answered the challenges of fellow Big South head coaches Brenda Mock Kirkpatrick (UNC Asheville) and DeUnna Hendrix (High Point). He then called out Georgia head coach Andy Landers and Tennessee Tech head coach Jim Davis.

Sherard called out Providence assistant coach Dario Hernandez.

Bloodworth had been called out by Radford assistant Fran Recchia. She then proceeded to call out her sister, Valparaiso head coach Tracey Dorow, along with Miami (Ohio) head coach Cleve Wright and Liberty alumnus Jeri Porter, who is now an assistant coach at Georgia State.

Hoyt was called out by Mount St. Mary's assistant Josh Keys. Hoyt then issued challenges to East Carolina assistant John Marcum and Middle Tennessee State assistant Kim Brewton.
