OWINGS MILLS, Md. - The Stevenson women's basketball team will hold its annual pink game for breast cancer awareness on Saturday, February 16 when the Mustangs host a Commonwealth Conference contest versus Lebanon Valley at Owings Mills Gymnasium beginning at 2:00 p.m.
Saturday will also be senior day as Stevenson concludes the 2012-13 season by honoring its lone senior Sam Murray (Reisterstown, Md./St. Paul's School For Girls) prior to its season finale.
The Mustangs have raised nearly $5,000 for breast cancer research over the last three years with Susan G. Komen Maryland being the prime beneficiary. To help commemorate the event, the women's team will wear pink shooting shirts in warm-ups as well as pink shoe laces.
All fans are also asked to wear pink to Saturday's game.
A portion of Saturday's admission sales will also be donated and fans are encouraged to donate as well. Special pink and white mini basketballs will also be given away and there will be a silent auction, including one-of-kind Stevenson items as well as gifts from the Washington Capitals, Baltimore Orioles and the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
In addition, fans can purchase a pink carnation donated by Flowers & Fancies in Owings Mills to honor a loved one affected by breast cancer or for that special someone for Valentine's Day. The Stevenson University Dining Services will also be providing pink ribbon cookies for sale.
At halftime, fans will be treated to a special performance by the Vincent Farm Elementary School jump rope team led by Jessica Ramer.
Following the women's game, the Stevenson men's basketball team will be in action against Lebanon Valley in a crucial Commonwealth Conference contest with conference tournament implications. Halftime of the men's game will also feature performances by the Stevenson cheer and dance teams.
