from the USA South Athletic Conference:
The women’s basketball season within the USA South Athletic Conference is well underway and fierce battles with championship dreams are taking place in gyms across the League’s six states. A battle which is being fought outside of the sports arena is one by Greensboro College Women’s Basketball Head Coach Randy Tuggle against pancreatic cancer. In support of a member of its women’s basketball family, the USA South has invited each team in the Conference to designate one of its remaining home games as a Pancreatic Cancer Awareness event in support of Coach Tuggle and his battle to #BlockOutCancer.

In an effort to visually support the cause and Coach Tuggle, the USA South is supplying purple-themed warm-up shirts to be worn by each team during the specific games. Additionally, purple ribbons will be given to the coaching staffs and game personnel to wear in support. Finally, each member of the home team from the game will sign a shirt with well-wishes which will be sent to Coach Tuggle. Should you wish to support the Tuggle Family financially, please do so by visiting their GoFundMe page. Any unused funds will be donated by the Tuggle’s to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
