NORFOLK-Get your Pink on for the 12th annual Hoops for the Cure basketball game between the ODU Lady Monarchs and C-USA foe UTEP.

The game is Saturday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk.

The event is especially meaningful this year because it marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Sara Jones, a volunteer assistant to ODU head coach Karen Barefoot.  Jones had battled the disease for over 10 years.

The Hoops for the Cure celebrates breast cancer survivors and their families and the fight to find a cure for breast cancer. There is also an information fair, pre-game survivor walk and more.

For information on the game and tickets, call 683-4444 or go to the Susan G. Kormen Tidewater Website.
