Cavalier took seven buckets of ice, and Benson two. In addition the duo each donated 25 dollars to the ALS Association.
As a part of the ice bucket challenge, Benson nominated Carson-Newman hoops alum and Missouri State men's basketball strength coach Collin Crane to take part. Cavalier has nominated two-time West Virginia Sportswriter of the Year Chuck McGill, Men's Health's Brian Dalek and the Charlottesville Daily Progress' Andrew Ramspacher. The quartet now have 48 hours to to dump a bucket of ice water over their head or make a donation to fight ALS.
The ice bucket challenge has been sweeping the nation over the past couple weeks as it has helped the ALS Association raise $4 million in donations compared to $1.12 million at this time last year. The ALS Association has been using the hashtag #IceBucketChallenge to spread the word.
