NCAA Coaches Face Off at LG Home Court Challenge

Bobby Hurley, former All-American guard at Duke and current assistant coach of the University of Rhode Island men’s basketball team, and Travis Ford, two-time SEC tournament MVP at Kentucky and current Oklahoma State University head coach, traded in their playbooks for chore lists at the “LG Home Court Challenge” during the NCAA Final Four weekend.

LG Electronics USA, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, hosted the competition and donated a total of $20,000 in the participating coaches’ names to Coaches vs. Cancer and the MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital.

Both coaches, appearing on behalf of the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC), brought their competitive spirit off the court and into the LG Home Court Challenge.

After some buzzer-beating household tasks including laundry, baking and watching sports in 3D, Anthony tallied the coaches’ scores and crowned Coach Ford as the winner. LG made this announcement Monday, April 2.
