The latest college basketball comes at us for a great cause: battling cancer. Most recently UCLA routed Prairie View 82-58 in opening round action of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer. For those unfamiliar with this tournament,
The Coaches Vs. Cancer Classic (now known as the 2K Sports Classic benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer) is an annual college basketball tournament played in November at the beginning of the season. The tournament was first formed in 1995 as a collaboration between the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society, with help from The Gazelle Group, Inc. in an effort to raise funds for cancer research. In the current format, 16 teams from 16 separate conferences are invited to the tournament. First and second Round games are held at regional sites selected before the tournament. The semi-finals and finals are held at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
More importantly there were plenty of Bruins cheerleaders there. So technically we have the best of both worlds here. Great hoops, great causes, and lovely ladies to cheer it all on.
Here are some pics from the event.
Now this is how you do a cause
