Wichita State men’s basketball coach Gregg Marshall is again one of the leaders in the Infiniti Coaches’ Charity Challenge.
Marshall finished in the top four last season and presented a check for $15,000 to the Wichita Children’s Home. He is representing that charity again in 2015. Fans can vote for their favorite coach or charity at www.espn.com/infiniti. The contest starts with 48 coaches and runs for 10 weeks. The first round of voting ends Jan. 25.
Each coach earns at least $1,000 and the winning coach earns $100,000.
Iowa State’s Fred Hoiberg is in first place, followed by Purdue’s Matt Painter, Maryland’s Mark Turgeon and Marshall.
