ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The New Mexico women's basketball team will auction off all the WBCA Pink Zone uniforms Saturday in the final home game of the regular-season against Wyoming at 2 p.m. Fans will have an opportunity to bid on the uniforms with all proceeds benefitting the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund. The uniforms were worn by the Lobos as part of the Women's Basketball Coaches Association's annual Pink Zone initiative.
UNM held its annual Breast Cancer game against BYU on Feb. 17. The Lobos were one of more than 1,500 schools and organizations to participate in the initiative. The Pink Zone game marked the first time in UNM school history that the Lobos have worn pink uniforms.
The auction will start prior to the tip of the Wyoming game with winners announced at the four-minute media timeout during the game.
