Tonight’s game will be another high-stakes Cascade Conference matchup, with the OIT women currently in 4th place, just one game back of Corban and Southern Oregon. Saturday will be only the 8th ever meeting between the Lions and Oregon Tech with the Lady Owls winning all seven of the previous games including a sweep last year and win earlier this year 65-47 in Portland.
The Tech men are ranked at No. 12 nationally and are currently just a half game back of 1st place in the CCC at 9-2. Saturday will be the 19th overall meeting between Multnomah and Oregon Tech. The Owls are 18-0 in the all-time series winning both meetings last season and a 93-87 win this year in Portland on December 29th.
The event is used as an awareness event in honor of Martha Anne Dow who served as the president of Oregon Tech from 1999-2007. The former president and Hustlin' Owls basketball fan lost her battle with breast cancer on September 29, 2007. The Pink Out is a tribute to President Dow. She made lasting contributions to Oregon Tech. The Center for Health Professions was her vision and, today, it bears her name. Martha Anne Dow envisioned this building as a place to provide opportunities for educating students in health professions, where they would learn how to support physicians in detecting disease, imaging the human body, and caring for patients in a multitude of settings and disciplines.
This year fans may donate to the American Cancer Society with donation buckets located throughout the event. The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem.
