To raise funds for local cancer support organizations, two Miami University basketball games will be open to the public for free this weekend.

People who attend the women’s and men’s basketball games Saturday at Millett Hall in Oxford will need to get tickets, even though there is no cost. The event is the eighth annual Love.Honor.Care game presented by Western & Southern Financial Group.

This year’s beneficiary is Ride Cincinnati, an organization funding cancer research and care in the Greater Cincinnati area.

“Over the past seven years, Miami Athletics has raised more than $165,000 through this initiative with the help of generous donations, university support and fan engagement,” states a release from the University’s athletic department.

The women’s basketball team plays at 1 p.m. Saturday against conference rival Toledo. The men’s team plays at 3:30 p.m. against Central Michigan.

Doors open to the public at noon. Free parking is available in through Gates 1 or 2 of East Sycamore Street (West Millett lot).

“Carnival on the Concourse will be available beginning at 12 p.m. through the end of halftime of the men’s game and an autograph session with both teams will be offered after their respective games. There also will be several silent auction items available for bid during the basketball games, and opportunities to purchase apparel to support the fundraising efforts,” the release said.
