The coaches are also showing their support by wearing pink wristbands.

Fans are likewise encouraged to support the cause this Saturday by wearing pink, making donations for cancer research, and bidding on a pink warm-up shirt autographed by the women's basketball team.  All donations and proceeds from the autographed shirt will go to the Kay Yow / WBCA Cancer Fund.
