Prior to the start of the game, there was a pregame ceremony as part of the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association initiative to raise cancer awareness and show support to those stricken within the coaching ranks. The Seton Hall women’s team wore pink shooting shirts and pink uniforms, and cancer survivors were honored. This was their annual pink zone game, where there were giveaways to the fans that included mini-balls and t-shirts. Also, there was a large raffle of items that were donated by corporations with all monies raised to be donated to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund.
