Hoops for Hope in Southwest Kansas at Ashland


ASHLAND, Kan. (AP) – Current and former women’s college basketball stars will be among the players Friday in the annual “Hoops for Hope” charity game in south-central Kansas. The game is put on by Ashland Health Center in Ashland and Comanche County Hospital in Coldwater. A sellout crowd is expected at South Central High School in Ashland, and the game is to be carried live on Fox Sports Midwest. Ninety percent of the profits go to the WEPAC Alliance to provide cancer prevention and education services to women in Wilmore, Englewood, Protection, Ashland and Coldwater. The remaining 10 percent goes to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, named for the legendary North Carolina State women’s basketball coach. The $30 tickets include a pink T-shirt. Cheerleaders from Wichita State and Emporia State universities will be on hand.
