It's Suits and Sneakers weekend in college hoops 

It's the annual weekend where college basketball coaches go casual to raise awareness about cancer.

The National Association of Basketball Coaches and the American Cancer Society are holding their annual Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers awareness weekend on Saturday and Sunday.

Participating coaches will wear sneakers instead of dress shoes with their suits during weekend games to demonstrate their support for the American Cancer Society.

Fans may support the cause by texting COACH to 20222 from any wireless phone to make a $5 donation toward Coaches vs. Cancer.

Coaches vs. Cancer participants have raised more than $70 million since 1993 to help fund research and provide information and education.
