Bison basketball plays for breast cancer awareness
The NDSU women’s basketball team grabbed their pink jerseys for the annual Pink Game for Breast Cancer Awareness game. Denver visited the SCHEELS Center at the Sanford Health Atheltic Complex on February 10 and came away with a five-point victory over the Bison.
The result of the game didn’t tell the story of that Saturday afternoon. In partnership with Edith Sanford Breast Center and the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, the basketball team wore pink warm-up shirts with the name of friends or family members who have suffered from the heinous disease.
Sanford was present, selling the pink shirts for the Edith Sanford Breast Center. To go along with the pink trim on NDSU’s jerseys, head coach Maren Walseth donated $100 to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund for every three-pointer NDSU hit.
