Nevada’s game on February 20 versus Idaho at 7 p.m. is “Pack it with Pink” night and fans that wear pink to the game will get in free. Head men’s and women’s basketball coaches Mark Fox and Jane Albright will each donate $1 for each fan in attendance to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund. In addition, Nevada is asking fans for donations to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund. The fund is a charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause. Kay Yow is former head women's basketball coach at NC State and was a founding member of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA). She was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time in 1987 and passed away on January 24, 2009.
