Thursday, February 11th, with the women's game at 6:00 p.m. and the

The concession stand will also be open for the night.
The WBCA Pink Zone™ initiative is a global, unified effort for the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's (WBCA) nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond.
The WBCA began the WBCA Pink Zone™, formerly known as "Think Pink", in 2007 as an initiative to raise breast cancer awareness in women's basketball, on campuses and in communities. In 2007, more than 120 schools unified for this effort and helped make the inaugural year a success. In 2008, over 1,200 teams and organizations participated, reaching over 830,000 fans and raising over $930,000 for breast cancer awareness and research.
The WBCA's charity of choice is the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund™, in partnership with The V Foundation. For more information on the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund™, click here.
See you there! And WEAR PINK!
