Flying Dutchmen Taking Part In Coaches vs. Cancer Event on Saturday

Hope men’s basketball coach Matt Neil and his assistants are taking part in the National Association of Basketball Coaches “Coaches vs. Cancer Suits and Sneakers” awareness weekend.

Neil and his staff will wear sneakers with their suits when they host Kalamazoo at 3 p.m. Saturday at DeVos Fieldhouse.

The fight against cancer has touched close to home for Hope with the recent disclosure that former Hope captain Chris VanderSlice (’99) has been diagnosed with leukemia.
