LAWRENCE, Kan. – In honor of the 27th Annual National Girls and Women in Sports Day (NGWSD), Kansas Athletics is offering a special opportunity for women of all ages Saturday night with FREE admission into Allen Fieldhouse at 8 p.m., for a Big 12 Conference women’s basketball game between Kansas and No. 12/11 Oklahoma State.

FREE general admission tickets will be granted on game day at any general public entrance while supplies last. This year’s theme for the national event is “Girls in Sports, an Investment in the Future.”
NGWSD is celebrated in all 50 states with community-based events, award ceremonies and activities honoring the achievements and encouraging participation of girls and women in sports.
NGWSD began in 1987 as a day to remember Olympic volleyball player Flo Hyman for her athletic achievements and her work to assure equality for women's sports. Hyman died of Marfan's Syndrome in 1986 while competing in a volleyball tournament in Japan. Since that time, NGWSD has evolved into a day to acknowledge the past and recognize current sports achievements, the positive influence of sports participation and the continuing struggle for equality and access for women in sports.
For more information about this special opportunity, please call the Kansas Athletics Ticket Office at (800) 34-HAWKS.
