KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's women's basketball team is participating in a national "Think Pink" program to promote breast cancer awareness and support research for a cure.

At their home contest versus Buffalo Wednesday, Feb. 13, the Broncos will wear pink uniforms, and admission will be free of charge to anyone wearing a pink shirt. Tip off is at 7:30 p.m. in University Arena.

Donations will be accepted to support cancer research through the Jimmy V Cancer Foundation.
