K-State to Host Play 4Kay Game Saturday


MANHATTAN, Kan. – The first 4,000 fans to the Kansas State women’s basketball game this Saturday will receive a free pink K-State t-shirt provided by Mercy Regional Health Center, Briggs Auto and GTM Sportswear during K-State’s “Play 4Kay” event. K-State will take part in the national “Play 4Kay” initiative during the Big 12 matchup against Oklahoma in Bramlage Coliseum. Doors to the arena open at 6 p.m., for the 7 p.m., tipoff.

In addition to the pink t-shirt giveaway, special pink concession items will be made available at the Bramlage Coliseum concession stands.

On the floor for the seventh straight season, Kansas State will wear pink uniforms. The jerseys resemble K-State’s traditional home white uniforms, with the white replaced by pink.

This is the eighth season K-State has taken part in this nationwide awareness event, and the 11th straight season K-State has had a breast cancer awareness game. The “Play 4Kay” initiative is an opportunity for a nation of coaches to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for research on the court, across campuses, in communities and beyond. The official charity is the Kay Yow Cancer Fund in partnership with The V Foundation and Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA).
