Area Colleges: UIS hosts pink game

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars play the Wisconsin-Parkside Rangers today at 5:30 p.m. at The Recreation and Athletic Center in the “Pack the TRAC Pink” game.

Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the Great Lakes Valley Conference to help raise awareness for breast cancer.

The Stars (7-17 overall, 2-14 in the GLVC) have won two of their last three games with victories against Oakland City and St. Joseph’s. Wisconsin-Parkside is 19-5 and 13-3 and received votes in this week’s USA Today/ESPN NCAA Division II Top 25 women’s poll.

UIS concludes the season Saturday against Lewis.

The game was previewed in a February 17, 2011, edition of The State Journal-Register.
