MUNCIE, Ind. -- Head coach Billy Taylor and the Ball State men's basketball staff will be wearing sneakers for Saturday's road game at Miami University.

They will be joining coaches from across the country taking part in the Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers weekend, a collaborative effort of the National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society.

Participating coaches will wear sneakers instead of dress shoes with their usual game attire to demonstrate their support for the American Cancer Society and the fight against cancer.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of college and high school coaches across the country, Coaches vs. Cancer participants have raised nearly $70 million since 1993.

That money has helped save lives by educating and empowering people to avoid cancer or find it early, helping people facing cancer make decisions and overcome obstacles in their personal fight, investing in research that yields groundbreaking discoveries into cancer's causes and cures, and helping pass laws that fight cancer and keep our communities healthy.

To learn more, visit or call 1-800-ACS-2345.

Ball State's game Saturday at Miami is scheduled for a 3 p.m. tipoff from Millett Hall in Oxford, Ohio. The game will be televised by the Ball State Sports Network.
