WKU hosting inaugural 'Pink Out'

Jan. 23—The Western Kentucky University men's basketball team is hosting its inaugural Coaches vs. Cancer "Pink Out" during Thursday's game against FIU in an effort to raise breast cancer awareness and honor cancer survivors.

The first 5,000 fans will receive pink "Tops" T-shirts, and a live auction is currently underway on WKU's athletic website for fans to bid on special pre-game shooting shirts that the Hilltoppers will wear. All cancer survivors can also sign up online to be recognized during the contest.
