Marquette men’s basketball team will be ‘Pretty in Pink’ for ‘Coaches vs. Cancer’ game (photo)


The Marquette Golden Eagles men’s basketball team will host the No. 4-ranked Villanova Wildcats at BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisc. on Saturday. An already-compelling match-up will be heightened as it will be part of the Coaches vs. Cancer’s Suits And Sneakers Awareness Weekend.

As you plainly can see above, Marquette will be wearing some very pink jerseys for the game. The jerseys do have the team’s traditional colors of navy blue and gold as accents, but hoo-wee, those bad boys are so very, very, very pink.

Despite the rather off-putting nature of the on-court garb, one cannot argue that it’s for a good cause. So play on, Marquette Golden Eagles, in your pink jerseys.

And thanks for allowing me to incorporate a John Hughes movie title and a song from The Psychedelic Furs into a headline. Those opportunities don’t come along too often. I mean, how likely is it that “Uncle Buck” or “Dumb Waiters” can be blended into a post on a sports blog?
