Hoiberg calls out Harrison Barnes, Doug McDermott for ALS challenge

PREVIOUSLY: Coach K gets drenched | Nebraska staff's different approach

We've held back from posting every college hoops coach's ALS ice bucket challenge video, but when one of the most prominent men in the game calls out two well-known NBA players and former college stars, we have to share.

Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg will forever affectionately be referred to as "The Mayor" around Iowa. He attended Ames High School and starred for Iowa State before playing more than a decade at the NBA level. He set state records and endeared himself to a community forever because of what he meant for basketball success in that state.

Now Hoiberg's leading a resurgence at Iowa State, and here we have him in a pretty great video. First off, his wife, Carol, has the pleasure of dousing her hubby with a big ol' bucket of chilly water. Sweet revenge of some sort, I'm sure. Plus, Hoiberg also gets the vantage point of the dump via a handheld camera.

But it's Hoiberg calling out Harrison Barnes and Doug McDermott -- who were teammates at Ames High -- as the "second and third best" players in the history of the high school. Hoiberg tongue-in-cheek (or maybe not!) referring to himself as the best.

Well-played, Fred.
