These last two weeks the WBCA and women's basketball been raising breast cancer awareness. The "Pink Zone" as you call it has taken this awareness across the entire country.

We started off the campaign on our home floor verses NAU in our pink shooting shirts, pink headbands, and pink coaching clothes. With the officials jumping on board displaying their pink whistles we wrapped up the weekend at WSU with a great program at the conclusion of the game.

A former University of Utah student athlete spoke to the fans and both teams as a breast cancer survivor and the importance of early detection. I can't think of a more important message this past weekend than the one our student athletes heard sitting on the bench after our tremendous road sweep. As sweet as our success was this past weekend, nothing can come close to the impact of breast cancer on all of us.

The last number I heard was that the Pink Zone had raised nearly a million dollars over the last two weeks. If that isn't success I don't know what is. We all know the value and giving of sacrificing and taking care of others that we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.

Go see your doctor today! Early detection CAN save you.
