EDISON — “Pink Night” a program in which the Middlesex County College and Ocean County College basketball teams supported Breast Cancer Awareness, was held at Middlesex on Feb. 15. The men’s and women’s teams from both schools wore pink warmup t-shirts and wristbands and members of the Middlesex women’s team and softball squad held a bake sale and collected donations for cancer research. The program was part of “Pink Zone,” a national effort to raise awareness and funds, organized by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association. Before the women’s game, Delores Scolamiero, a cancer survivor, officiated at a ceremonial tipoff.
