Once again, NC State head coach Kay Yow and the Susan G. Komen Foundation teamed up again for the third edition of the “Hoops For Hope” game. The event is a breast cancer awareness event, in addition to a fund raising opportunity for the foundation. Hoops for Hope is a basketball game centered around hope – hope for early detection, hope for increased survival and hope for a cure.

NC State and Boston College were among over 900 schools that are participating in “Think Pink” week (Feb. 8-17). “Think Pink” is the WBCA’s global, unified effort to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. Of course each NC State game is played with special meaning as Coach Yow has battled the disease since 1987.
