MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee men’s basketball head coach Kermit Davis is joining the American Cancer Society and other area head coaches for the Coaches vs. Cancer Tipoff Breakfast on Nov. 1 at 7 a.m. in Allen Arena on the campus of Lipscomb University. George Plaster will serve as emcee for the event.

“The breakfast is a great opportunity for all the area Division I head coaches to come together and really bring a heightened awareness of cancer research,” Davis said. “The breakfast is in conjunction with the Nashville Sports Council and American Cancer Society, so they’re expecting huge crowd. It’s a wonderful way to raise funding for cancer research, plus a great tipoff to college basketball in our area.”

Along with Davis, Rick Byrd (Belmont), John Cooper (Tennessee State), Dave Loos (Austin Peay), Scott Sanderson (Lipscomb) and Kevin Stallings (Vanderbilt) also will be on hand. Each coach will discuss the upcoming season and answer questions from Plaster and the audience.

The American Cancer Society’s Coaches vs. Cancer program is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). The program empowers athletic coaches, their teams and communities to join in the fight against cancer and help raise awareness and funds through year-round educational efforts and fundraising activities. Through the dedicated efforts of coaches across the country, Coaches vs. Cancer has raised more than $60 million since 1993.

Limited seating is available and general admission is $25 or $12 for college students. For reservations, click here or call 615-341-7330.
