Women's Basketball to "Think Pink" on Saturday during game with Johns Hopkins

COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – The Ursinus College women's basketball team will join with basketball programs across the country on Saturday afternoon for the Women's Basketball Coaches Assocation (WBCA) Annual Pink Zone game in their matchup with Johns Hopkins at 1 p.m.

Fans are asked to "Think Pink" during the game by wearing any clothing article in a pink color to raise breast cancer awareness in women's basketball, on campuses and in communities.

The charity of choice for the Pink Zone is the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, named after former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach Kay Yow. To date, the fund has raised nearly $3.3 million, reached 2.7 million fans and has unified over 4,700 participants in only four years. To donate, fans are asked to visit www.kayyow.com or text '4KAY' to 85944 to make a $10 donation to the Fund.
