2 Bengals accept Lauren Hill's layup challenge

CINCINNATI (AP) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and left tackle Andrew Whitworth accepted Lauren Hill's challenge to make a dizzy layup and help raise money for research into her type of brain cancer.

The freshman at Division III Mount St. Joseph was diagnosed a year ago and has only months to live. The NCAA has allowed the school to move up its opening game to Sunday because of her condition.

Although she's right-handed, Hill has to shoot with her left hand because the tumor has affected her coordination. Also, she can't move her head side-to-side because it makes her dizzy.

The Bengals players spun five times and made a layup with their non-dominant hand on Tuesday at Paul Brown Stadium. Participants can donate $10 to cancer research.
