The Longhorns look to improve their records Saturday against Big 12 opponent Iowa State. It is their Volley for a Cure PINK match. The program's goal is to educate about early detection, raise awareness, and celebrate those who are fighting and those who are survivors. This is a great cause, so spread the word all of you in the central Texas community…and beyond!

First serve is at 6:30pm. For more information on the Volley for a Cure PINK match, check out their store at this link.
