Lady Eagles top SoCon in "Pack the House in Pink" event

Georgia Southern's women's basketball program won the 2012 "Pack the House in Pink Challenge" for the Southern Conference after hosting 1,329 fans Jan. 21. The top crowd in the SoCon went home happy after the Lady Eagles won their second-straight game by one point over Western Carolina.
    “In the fifth year of this initiative, we are pleased to see the continued increase in attendance, excitement and exposure for our women’s basketball programs,” said Greg Christopher, chair of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Committee and director of athletics at Bowling Green State University. "The year-in and year-out success of 'Pack the House' is a direct tribute to the commitment level put forth by the personnel at each campus. These efforts continue to help grow the game.”
    The challenge, which raises money for breast cancer awareness, attracted more than 431,000 fans at 153 participating institutions. It awards one school from each Division I conference with a $500 donation to a nonprofit organization of its choice.
