"Play 4Kay" game on Wednesday

The Denison University women's basketball team will play its annual Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Play 4Kay game on Wednesday (Feb. 19) to promote breast cancer awareness.  The game will be part of a men's and women's doubleheader against Hiram College at Livingston Gymnasium.

The women will open the night with a 6 p.m. contest against the Terriers.  Winners of three of their last four, the Big Red look to improve their position in the North Coast Athletic Conference standings and lock up a home game in the quarterfinals of the NCAC Tournament. 

The second half of the doubleheader features the DU men versus Hiram at 8 p.m.  Denison has won four of its last five games, including a dominating 92-57 victory over Wabash last Saturday on Senior Day.  Wednesday will mark the final regular season home game for both squads this season.

A donation box will be available at the entrance to Livingston Gymnasium, with 50 percent of the proceeds going to the Allison Knobel Sitton Scholarship Fund, and the other half to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund.  All fans in attendance are encouraged to wear pink to show their support.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is sponsored by the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and is an opportunity for a nation of coaches to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for research on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. Since its inception in 2007, the Play 4Kay initiative has raised over $2.8 million to support women's cancer research.
