The Los Medanos College women’s and men’s basketball teams both participated in “Coaches vs. Cancer” night. Both Teams dropped close games but the night was not a waste.The women lost to Marin 67-55, the men also played Marin but kept it a little closer, losing 64-61.

The night brought attention to all kinds of cancer, rather than just breast cancer.

LMC men and women players wore warm-up shirts that read “Coaches vs. Cancer.” The women donned all pink shirts, while the men wore black with pink lettering.

The night was filled with a lot of pink, and prizes were handed out. Money was raised throughout the night with the funds going to the American Cancer Society.

The event was sponsored by a collaboration of the LMC Athletics department, Student Life and LMCAS.

There were contests for best pink outfit as well as a 3-point contest. The winners of the contest received gift cards to Cold Stone Creamery.

Maurice the Mustang was present the whole night dressed in all pink. Maurice cheered on the Mustangs and helped with all the successful festivities.
