MTSU Hoops Take On Rice and Cancer

From Jimmy Hart, mtsunews.com

Middle Tennessee State University’s Jan. 23 men’s basketball game against the visiting Rice Owls will support the American Cancer Society as part of the Coaches vs. Cancer program.

The 5 p.m. game will help raise awareness of the fight against cancer and demonstrate support for the Society and its mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

Funds raised at the Jan. 23 game will go toward the total raised this year by the Relay For Life of Middle Tennessee State University. For more information or to donate, visit relayforlife.org/mtsu.

For tickets, visit goblueraiders.com or call 615-898-2103 locally or dial toll free 1-888-YES-MTSU.

Fans are encouraged to wear purple in honor of those fighting cancer and in memory of loved ones lost to the disease.

MTSU alumnus and cancer survivor Wesley Taylor of Murfeesboro will lead the honorary tip-off. Follow the event on Twitter at#mtsucoachesvcancer.

MTSU will hold its annual Relay For Life celebration to benefit the American Cancer Society from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. on April 8. Cancer information and support is available 24 hours a day by calling the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345.
