(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Two Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference basketball teams will come together this month for cancer awareness.

The Lawrenceburg Lady Tigers will host Rushville for their annual “pink” game, called Hooping for Hope on Saturday, December 17.

Some of the items available include:

  • Mike Woodson autographed Adidas basketball
  • Signed basketball by each team
