GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG's women's basketball team will hold its annual Fight Like a Spartan event to support breast cancer awareness against Western Carolina on Saturday. Doors open at 1 p.m. for the Spartans' 2 p.m. contest against the Catamounts.

Fans are encouraged to wear pink and Fleming Gymnasium will be decorated in a pink motif. Pink Fight Like a Spartan T-shirts will also be on sale for $5 on the concourse of the gym. UNCG will be giving away free pink lemonade and pink Silly Bandz at the game.

There will also be a silent auction featuring: three passes for free gym membership at The Rush for a month, lunch with head coach Wendy Palmer, VIP experience for the Spartans' men's basketball game against Wofford on Feb. 21 (two courtside seats, parking pass and passes to eat at the Spartan Club's pregame and halftime functions), two passes for a VIP Hooters wing party (the winner and 10 friends will get all-you-can eat wings), two tickets to the Southern Conference tournament, two New Edition concert tickets, several Taste Yogurt Bar gift certificates, and a coupon book to several local eateries.

All of the money generated by the silent action, half of every ticket sold and a portion of Fight Like a Spartan T-shirt sales will go toward the Moses Cone Mammography Scholarship.

Tickets are $4 for adults, $3 for children ages 4-17 and $2 for groups of 10 or more.
