Lady Lions To Participate In Play4Kay National Free Throw Challenge Throughout February

Penn State women’s basketball will participate in Play4Kay’s National Free Throw Challenge throughout February to benefit the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Women’s basketball programs around the country will compete to raise money and be crowned champion. Fans can pledge money for every free throw their favorite team makes or through a one-time flat donation here.

The Lady Lions should have little trouble putting up a fight against other Division I teams while fundraising. Penn State currently ranks eighth nationally in free throws made so far this season.

Fans can keep track of the Lady Lions’ progress by checking in on the national leaderboard throughout February.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund works to “extend and improve the lives of those who are battling cancer” by raising money for cancer research and helping those in need. The organization is named after legendary NC State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow, who passed away in 2009 following a 22-year battle with breast cancer.

The Lady Lions (7-14, 1-9 Big Ten) will also host their 14th-annual Play4Kay Pink Zone game on Sunday, February 9 when they take on Illinois at the Bryce Jordan Center. Tipoff for the conference matchup is set for 2 p.m.
