Tomorrow night at the Verizon Center, the Georgetown Hoyas will take on the St. John’s Red Storm for the 100th time in school history as they look to remain undefeated in Big East play. The matchup is also Georgetown’s ‘Men Against Breast Cancer’ game, so the team will be rocking special Jordan brand sneakers:

Per Georgetown’s athletics site:
Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson and the Hoyas are also partnering with Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) for an inaugural College Game Day on Saturday. Thompson plans to wear either a pink tie or shirt and his team will wear specially-designed Jordan Brand sneakers to promote breast cancer awareness. Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) is the nation’s first and only national 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to provide targeted support services that educate and empower men to be effective caregivers when breast cancer strikes a female loved one.
This sounds like a pretty cool cause to me, and more power to the Hoyas for wearing cool sneakers to bring awareness to it. You can tune in to the game tomorrow on FOX Sports 1 at 1:00 EST.
