Basketball teams taking part in 'Play 4 Gray'

The Pitt-Bradford men’s and women’s basketball teams will be taking part in “Play 4 Gray” on Saturday, Dec. 7, when they travel to Greensburg, Pa., to take on Pitt-Greensburg. The event is geared toward raising funds for Coach Brian Donoghue, a fellow college basketball coach, who is currently battling brain cancer.

Coach Donoghue is the head women’s basketball coach at King’s College and was diagnosed with brain cancer this past summer. “Play 4 Gray” was started by King’s College and the University of Scranton earlier this season.

The color gray was chosen because it is often the color used to represent brain cancer.

Any fans traveling to Greensburg for the games are encouraged to purchase t-shirts that the Bobcats will be selling. The price is $10 and all proceeds from the day’s events, including ticket sales, t-shirt sales and the 50/50 raffle being held, will go directly to the Donoghue family.
