Women's Basketball Game Notes - vs. UNC Asheville

CSU has been on a roll at home, winning five of the last five games they have hosted.  The Buccaneers are ranked fifth in the Big South Conference with a league record of 7-5 and an overall mark of 13-10, while UNC Asheville sits in the No. 8 spot with a record of 5-7 in the Big South and 11-12 overall.

Spectators are encouraged to wear pink tonight in honor of former N.C. State Head Coach Kay Yow as CSU hosts its annual breast cancer awareness game.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was created by the late North Carolina State University and Hall of Fame Coach Kay Yow. During her battle with cancer she became inspired to do more and believed that uniting players and coaches around the world to raise money by playing a simple game would aid in cancer research, honor survivors and serve the underserved.  

The Charleston Southern women's basketball team stands by Coach Yow's famous quote "When life kicks you, let it kick you forward." Thank you for your support in helping us continue to move forward and do more in the fight against ALL women's cancer.
