It’s always fun to get some new gear.
The TCU women’s basketball team was pumped to get some new kicks from Nike — black KD9 Aunt Pearls with a hot pink swish. But while the shoes may look cool, they have a serious message.
After all, there’s a meaning behind wearing pink.

The team is wearing the shoes in honor of the Play4Kay initiative, supporting women’s cancer research.
Before lacing up, head coach Raegan Pebley reminded her team of the shoes’ importance.
