49ers women's bball team seeing pink

The Charlotte 49ers women's basketball team puts its 10-game home winning streak on the line when it faces Atlantic 10 rival St. Bonaventure at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Halton Arena. The 49ers (14-9, 7-2) have added some "color" to the game as well.

The game is part of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association Pink Zone initiative, an effort by coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness in the sport and on college campuses. All fans are encouraged to wear pink to the game and the first 750 fans will receive a free pink pom pom.

Charlotte fans can purchase a basketball Pink Zone T-shirt for $5 until game time at the 49ers Ticket Office window. Net during normal business hours. Net proceeds from the sale of the shirts will benefit the WBCA/Kay Yow Breast Cancer Fund.
