Ninth Annual Pink Zone Game Set For March 1

UPDATE – Feb. 9, 4:51 p.m.: According to the university, tipoff is officially set for 2 p.m. on March 1 in the Bryce Jordan Center.

For the ninth year in a row, the Lady Lions basketball team will host its “Pink Zone” game in an effort to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.

Each year, attendees flood the Bryce Jordan Center in a sea of pink shirts, amidst other festivities. This year’s event is set for the Lady Lions’ March 1 season finale against the Wisconsin Badgers.

The game, which regularly fills up the BJC, includes special halftime and post-game ceremonies for breast cancer survivors. Survivors can also receive free transportation to the game and a free ticket, plus tickets for up to three family members. Official Pink Zone t-shirts are being sold for $15 at Penn State Hershey Breast Center or through Pennsylvania Pink Zone.

Last year, the Pink Zone at Penn State raised $310,000, pushing the charity over $1 million in its eight years. The 2014 Pink Zone Lady Lions game saw the sixth-largest crowd ever at the Bryce Jordan Center. Despite the struggles the Lady Lions have faced this season, the Pink Zone game is sure to bring out a large crowd.
