PHILADELPHIA – La Salle men’s basketball coach Dr. John Giannini took the #ALSicebucketchallenge today, accepting the challenge from Drexel head men’s basketball coach Bruiser Flint.


Giannini will make a donation of $1 per like on the La Salle Athletics Facebook page to ALS.

He called out St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt, Richmond coach Chris Mooney and University of the Sciences coach Dave Pauley to take the challenge next.

The #ALSicebucketchallenge has gone viral in the past month, helping ALS raise over $31 million since July 29, compared to $1.9 million during the same time last year.
