For the 11th consecutive season, the Penn State Lady Lions hosted their annual Pink Zone game on Sunday afternoon at the Bryce Jordan Center.
The Lady Lions donned pink jerseys for the game, which helps raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. The game typically draws a large crowd, which was again the case Sunday.
Penn State invited breast cancer survivors – reportedly more than 500 – to the court during an emotional halftime ceremony.
