USA South Teams Support "Suits & Sneakers" - PHOTOS

FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Several USA South men's and women's basketball programs participated in "Coaches vs. Cancer" which is a collaborative initiative of the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). This program empowers basketball coaches, their teams and communities to join the fight against cancer. Last weekend, January 28-30, coaches wore sneakers with their suits to demonstrate their support for the initiative.

By lacing up sneakers with their suits on the event's seventh annual awareness weekend, college and high school basketball coaches across the country will spotlight the fact that while cancer remains a major health concern, everyone can take daily steps to reduce their risk of the disease. For those who do not smoke, weight control, exercise and a healthy diet are the best ways to improve health and reduce cancer risk. In the U.S., overweight and obesity contribute to 14-to-20 percent of all cancer-related deaths.
