MUNCIE, Ind. - The Ball State University women's basketball team hosted Central Michigan last Thursday in its "Play 4Kay" Think Pink game to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer. 

The fight hits close to home with senior forward Katie Murphy who's mother Connie beat breast cancer six years ago.

The Women’s Basketball Coaches Association charity of choice is the Kay Yow Cancer. Founded in December 2007, the Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 c(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women's cancers through raising money for scientific research, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.

The late Kay Yow, the Fund's namesake and former North Carolina State University head women's basketball coach, was a past president and founding member of the WBCA, and a galvanizing voice for the Association.  Yow was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, and passed away on January 24, 2009, after facing her third bout with the disease.
