FAYETTEVILLE — It’s NCAA Pack the House day for the Razorback women’s basketball team on Sunday. Nationwide each Division I women’s basketball team designates one game to invite as many fans as possible to attend.
The Razorbacks, 11-6, host the Southeastern Conference co-leading Auburn Tigers at 2 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena. The sixth-ranked Tigers feature the preseason pick for SEC Player of the Year, DeWanna Bonner, and are undefeated at 17-0.
To help pack the house, Sunday is Take a Kid to a Game day as each paid adult can bring in one child in free.
Sunday’s game is also Arkansas’ National Girls’ and Women in Sport Day. Each of the 11 Arkansas women’s varsity teams will be honored at halftime, and all teams that are not on the road for competition this weekend will sign autographs after the game.
Starting this week, the official Pink Zone shirts for the Razorbacks’ Pink Game against Ole Miss are on sale. The shirts are $15 each, and serve as tickets for the Sunday, Feb. 15 game.
The Razorbacks want to turn Walton Arena pink in support of breast cancer awareness. The local affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as the Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association’s Pink Zone campaign are part of the promotion.
Shirts are now on sale at Hog Heaven in Bud Walton Arena and all three Razorback Shop locations (Arkansas Union, NWA Mall and the Promenade).
Fans can also order their shirts by downloading the Pink Zone order form and faxing their order in to the Arkansas Athletic Department.
