Shots From the Heart

Men's basketball head coach Mike Brey is one of 64 coaches set to participate in the 2nd annual 'Shots From the Heart' tournament.

CollegeInsider.com is spearheading the event in which college basketball coaches will compete in a free-throw shooting contest to help raise awareness for heart disease.

The event, which also includes a tournament for assistant coaches, will benefit the Skip Prosser Foundation. The former Wake Forest head coach passed away in 2007 of a heart attack.

Coaches will not have to actually compete against each other on the same court. Each coach will shoot 25 free throws at his convenience. A member of the athletic department will tally the results and the coach with the most makes would advance.

"The idea was to create awareness for heart disease through competition," says CollegeInsider.com co-founder Angela Lento. "We wanted to create something that coaches could have fun with. The fun but competitive nature of this event is something that I am sure coach Prosser would have enjoyed."

The American Heart Association is also part of the event and is one of the beneficiaries of the Skip Prosser Foundation, which was established in 2011. Prosser spent 21 years as collegiate head coach at Loyola (Maryland), Xavier and Wake Forest.
