CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s basketball team will play its second to last home game of the season, when Florida State visits the BankUnited Center on Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

The contest televised on FS South will be Miami’s Play4Kay game, an initiative to promote breast cancer awareness and raise money for breast cancer research through the Kay Yow Fund. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to help raise awareness for the cause.

The University is also implementing the Strive for Five campaign for the game, in an effort to break the Canes’ all-time attendance record. Tickets purchased before Sunday will only cost fans $1. Tickets purchased the day of the game will cost $5 but four of those dollars will go directly to the Kay Yow Fund.

Strive for Five tickets are still available today, click here to purchase.

Those walking into the BankUnited Center might notice two large Pink Snails in front of the arena. The large sculptures made famous during Art Basel are now a beloved invasion in South Florida. They left their home in Miami Beach and will now be nesting in “City Beautiful”, Coral Gables for two months.

These adored Pink Snails come courtesy of the international artistic collective Cracking Art Group and Italy’s renowned Galleria Ca d’Oro, which now has a premier new location in Coral Gable, Florida, on San Lorenzo North of Merrick Park Village, where more Cracking Art can be seen.

Protecting the BankUnited Center
With Miami’s season-opening win over Texas-Pan American, the Canes won their 25th-consecutive home contest – setting a new program record.

More on Play4Kay

Throughout the second and third weeks of February, women’s college basketball teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and nationally will take part in the Play 4Kay Initiative. Before her passing on January 24, 2009, Coach Yow, along with her teammates the WBCA and The V Foundation, achieved the feat of uniting thousands in the fight against women’s cancers.

The movement continues to grow and change lives each and every year during the month of February. The Play 4Kay initiative, formerly known as the WBCA Pink Zone, showcases women’s college basketball throughout the nation, with proceeds going to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

Coach Yow shared her goal of raising $5M through the Play 4Kay initiative. To her it was simple – 5,000 participants raising $1,000 each totaling to $5M. A total of $650,000 was raised in 2011. This year’s goal is to reach the $1M milestone.

Miami has extended that record to 38 games after its 61-37 victory over No. 22 North Carolina on Feb. 8. The streak is currently the third-longest active streak in the nation. Connecticut (99) and Stanford (76) are the two teams with longer active win streaks. Coincidentally, Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer, Connecticut’s Geno Auriemma and Miami’s Katie Meier shared last season’s AP National Coach of the Year Award.

The streak began with the team’s final regular season home game of the 2009-10 season and continued with a perfect 20-0 home record last season.

The previous record of 24 straight wins at home was set from the 1990-91 through the 1992-93 seasons.
