Nevada Basketball, Even Coach Ault to Go Red for Women Thursday
RENO, Nev. The University of Nevada will "Go Red for Women" on Thursday night when the Wolf Pack men’s basketball team takes on San Jose State at 7:05 p.m. at Lawlor Events Center.
Red is a color the University of Nevada usually avoids, but on Thursday, the school and even Hall of Fame Wolf Pack football coach Chris Ault will celebrate the color to promote the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women" campaign. Fans are encouraged to join Coach Ault in wearing red for the first time in his Wolf Pack career.
Nevada's men’s basketball coaches and staff will wear the "Go Red" lapel pin, and the game's ticket takers and scorer's table personnel will wear red T-shirts in an effort to raise awareness about women and heart disease, which is the No. 1 killer of women in the United States.
For more information about the "Go Red for Women" campaign, visit the American Heart Association's web site at www.heart.org.
Plenty of tickets are still available for Thursday’s game with San Jose State and can be purchased by calling or visiting the Wolf Pack Ticket Office at Legacy Hall at 775-348-PACK (7225) or by going online at www.nevadawolfpack.com.
