WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III and the Hoyas will be part of the inaugural Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) College Game Day when the team hosts St. John's at Verizon Center on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014.

Georgetown's game against the Red Storm tips off at 1 p.m. in the team's downtown home and the game will be shown live on Fox Sports 1. The game can be heard locally on Sports Talk 570.

"Like many people, I have been touched by breast cancer and am proud to partner with Men Against Breast Cancer to endorse the work they do in guiding men through the caregiving process of supporting their loved ones," Thompson said.

Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) is the nation's first and only national 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to provide targeted support services that educate and empower men to be effective caregivers when breast cancer strikes a female loved one. Since our founding in 1999, MABC has mobilized men across America, including under-served populations, to be active participants in the fight against breast cancer. Simply put, we help men be there for the women they love.

"Coach Thompson could not be a better ambassador for Men Against Breast Cancer and how men can support the women they love." says MABC Founder, Marc Heyison "This is the first step as we grow this partnership to support and educate more men across America and we thank John and Georgetown University for theirs and helping so many people."

MABC uses pink and blue awareness ribbons to symbolize that this fight is partnership between men and women that must be fought together.
