UCSB Announces Pink Zone Event for Feb. 20

Feb. 9, 2011

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UCSB Athletics is proud to announce its WBCA Pink Zone game will take place on Sunday, Feb. 20 when the women's basketball team hosts Seattle University in a 2 p.m. game.

The annual Pink Zone game is an effort by women's basketball programs across the nation to raise awareness of breast cancer and raise funds to help support research to beat the disease.

Fans are asked to wear pink gear to the game while UCSB coaches, players and staff will wear pink for the game. As in years past, the members of the UCSB women's basketball team will decorate pink shirts for fans to purchase with proceeds going towards the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach, was a past president and founding member of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA), and a galvanizing voice for the Association. Yow was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, and battled the disease for the third time before her passing on January 24, 2009 at the age of 66.
