    Iowa State men's hoops to wear pink vs. Kansas State

    AMES, Iowa—The Iowa State men’s basketball team will have a different look on Saturday when it takes the court at 1 p.m. against nationally ranked Kansas State on ESPN2. The Cyclones will sport pink shoes and jerseys with pink lettering to raise awareness for and help promote the fight against breast cancer.

    The Cyclones are among four schools in the nation – Brigham Young, Illinois, Oregon – Nike has outfitted with pink-highlighted uniforms and shoes for the important cause. The ISU Athletics Department and Hy-Vee are teaming together to sponsor a “Pink Out” game in Hilton Coliseum on Saturday. Students in Cyclone Alley will don pink shirts and the general public is encouraged to wear pink clothing to the game.

    Members of the Iowa State coaching staff already know the dangers of breast cancer. ISU head coach Greg McDermott’s wife, Theresa, and graduate assistant Bryan Petersen’s mother, Karen, are both breast cancer survivors.

    The decision to wear pink this weekend was an easy one for McDermott.

    “It’s important for our team to help in this cause, and that is the fight against breast cancer,” McDermott said. “I know first-hand the importance of early detection in the treatment of breast cancer. By wearing pink we hope to raise awareness at the national level so that women of all ages are reminded to be proactive with their health.”

    The McDermotts annually participate in “Hoops for Hope,” a fundraising gala benefitting the American Cancer Society. Coaches from the three other Division I schools in Iowa plus marquee college basketball coaches across the nation visit Des Moines each year to raise money for the ACS.

    It would be nice if the uniforms have a calming effect on the Wildcats.
