Winter Homecoming this Saturday!

By Laura Nelson on 02/05/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—A number of events are planned around OPSU's winter homecoming this Saturday, Feb. 9, including women's and men's basketball games against the University of Texas of the Permian Basin Falcons and the annual Staff Silent Auction plus the day has been designated as Play 4Kay, an initiative that supports breast cancer awareness.

Basketball action starts at 2 p.m. as the women take on UTPB, a team vying for the top spot in the Heartland Conference standings with a record of 14-5 overall and 7-1 HC while the Aggies are 4-16 and 1-7 HC. The Aggie men (4-18, 0-9 HC) tip off following the women's game at about 4 p.m. against the Falcons (9-9, 5-4 HC).

The games are also designated as Play 4Kay, a breast cancer awareness initiative sponsored by the Kay Yow Cancer Fund in partnership with the Women's Basketball Coaches Association and The V Foundation. Fans are encouraged to wear pink and consider donating to the fundraiser that will be held during the games. Kay Yow, a former North Carolina State University head women's coach, fought a 22-year battle with cancer before succumbing to the disease in 2009.

Bidders can browse the large variety of items displayed inside Oscar Williams Field House before and during the basketball games and compete against each other to claim ownership! This year, local artist Ben Test has donated two handcrafted ceramic vases, and OPSU's Dr. Wayne Manning has donated a Kenneth Wyatt framed print. Several valuable gift certificates for services such as carpet cleaning, Zumba sessions, meals, automobile service, and shopping will be offered along with memberships for the OPSU golf course and the Noble Activity Center. In addition, an assortment of OPSU clothing and Aggie athletic gear will be featured and even a coveted OPSU Rodeo Team jacket will be available to the highest bidder!

All proceeds benefit the OPSU staff scholarship, a fund set aside to assist OPSU employees or their children who are pursuing a degree.

Don't forget the homecoming royalty-the Queen and King will be revealed during halftime of the men's game!

Mark Feb. 9 on your calendar to wear pink and enjoy some great OPSU basketball, homecoming ceremonies, and the silent auction!
