CORVALLIS, Ore. -- Oregon State women's basketball team will host the University of California, Berkley in their annual Dam Cancer game Sunday afternoon.

Oregon state guard, Katie McWilliams said to play in these games means a lot to the players who have personal connections.

"My best friend's mom had it and she was able to survive and so it's just very special to be able to acknowledge those people," said McWilliams.

The game is just one part of the school's Dam Cancer campaign. A brunch and silent auction will also be held, along with a gymnastics meet.

Fans who purchase a Dam Cancer shirt from the Beaver Store and wear them to the events will be allowed in for free.

During the basketball game, the Beavers will wear their #DamCancer pink uniforms.

"It's women basketball, it's our thing and there's so many causes in the world that we can point our energy to and this is the one we've chosen for years. So my entire career 22 years now I think you know we've had a pink game," said head coach Scott Rueck.

Following the game, head coach Scott Rueck's daughter will cut and donate her hair. A gesture that was previously done by former Beaver players Ruth Hamblin (2012-2016) and Sydney Wiese (2013-2017). Fans can also come down to the court and donate their hair.

All of the proceeds will go to Corvallis Clinic's Project H.E.R.
