DUBOIS – The Penn State DuBois basketball teams will host “Pink Zone” basketball games to raise awareness for breast cancer research on Feb. 2, as both men’s and women’s teams take on Penn College.
Pink Zone promotes awareness of cancer and raises funds for breast cancer organizations and charities. Pink Zone T-shirts can be purchased at the campus bookstore as well as at the game on Feb. 2. All proceeds will be donated to a local organization that supports cancer research.
The DuBois Lady Lions will wear pink shooting shirts, pink socks and pink wrist bands for the game, and the game ball will be a special pink and white basketball.
The men will also show their support by wearing pink shooting shirts for warm up prior to the game. Anyone who attends the game is encouraged to wear pink, as well.
Penn State DuBois will enter the Pink Zone with the women’s tip-off, scheduled for 1 p.m. on Feb. 2, in the Multipurpose Building Gymnasium. The men are slated to take to the court at 3 p.m.
