Paging Mr. Blackwell

Watching Jay Wright coach his Villanova Wildcats against Seton Hall, you notice something was different. Watching John Calipari (pictured) coach his Memphis Tigers you noticed that something was also different.

All around the country coaches ditched their traditional expensive suits in exchange for polos, sweat suits and sneaks. Wright and Calipari, both know around the country for their great where decked out in sweat suits.

The change was for a good cause. Coaches around the country changes their attire to raise awareness for Coaches vs. Cancers' fight against cancer. In the 13 years since being founded in 1993, Coaches vs. Cancer has helped generate more than $23 million in direct support for the American Cancer Society.
