INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -South Dakota State basketball coach Scott Nagy will coach barefoot this weekend as part of a fundraising effort for earthquake relief in Haiti.
The Jackrabbits will play Oakland (Mich.) in Brookings, S.D. on Saturday. Nagy's goal is to help collect $30,000 and 2,000 pairs of shoes. Nagy is collaborating with Samaritan's Feet, which is a charitable organization based in Charlotte, N.C.
Nagy's adopted daughter is from a suburb of the Haitian capital, Port-au-Prince. He has been unable to contact his child's birth mother since the earthquake a week ago.
Members of the South Dakota High School Coaches Association also will coach barefoot this weekend to offer support.
