The annual Paint it Pink game against SLUH has been rescheduled to Feb. 9. The game is in support of cancer patients in the Saint Louis area. Both basketball programs will be raising money for the Tata Sisterhood,  who works directly with breast cancer patients helping them with treatment expenses and providing motivational support for them. Athletic Director John Pakula knew he wanted to be involved in the game for the second year.

“Something the AD from SLUH and I have been talking about for a while now,” Pukala said. “We will pick a game every year against them and kind of keep the Jesuit part of it.”

Cancer is something that has personally affected Coach Kent Williams, who wants to coach this game to the best of his ability for his mother, who is a breast cancer survivor.

“For me personally, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was in 7th grade,” Williams said. “So this is a great way to create awareness and raise some money for cancer research.”

Senior Guard Grant Western hopes the game will help a good cause.

“I want to participate and do what I can to help,” Western said. “This is great opportunity to do it especially helping those who really need this.”
