ESPN's Holly Rowe Will Cover Tonight's UConn-South Carolina Game While Battling Through Cancer Treatments

The beloved ESPN reporter will be covering the game, as she should be.

The biggest game of the women's college basketball season is taking place tonight. South Carolina is set to host UConn in Columbia.

The Huskies bring their 20-0 record against the Gamecocks, who will be one of their toughest competitors come March. USC is 18-3 and ranked No. 6 in the country.

The game will be televised on ESPN. Holly Rowe, one of the best reporters in the country, will be covering the game.

Rowe, who's battling cancer, "apologized in advance" for what she'll look like on TV tonight. She's going through cancer treatment and one of the side effects is a rash.

"Dear America, I apologize in advance. 1 of my cancer treatment side effects is a rash. Uconn @ So Car, biggest WBB game of year, it’s on my face. Delightful. Pretend you don’t notice. Glass half full:scan Tues. shows progress but I look hideous. Doing best I can," Rowe wrote.

Of course, there's no need to apologize. Rowe is an incredible reporter, she's a fighter, and nothing else really matters.

America wants her at this game, doing her job. And that's what she's going to do.

ESPN's Rachel Nichols probably summed it up best.

South Carolina and UConn are set to tip off at 7 p.m. E.T. Be sure to tune in.
