GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - On Jan. 10, the Green Bay men's basketball team announced the Black Out Cancer Initiative along with Bellin Health and Broadway Automotive and head coach Brian Wardle unveiled special black jerseys his team will wear for its Black Out Cancer Game against Milwaukee on Feb. 4.

This will not mark the lone time that the Green Bay men's and women's basketball teams will wear alternate jerseys this season, as the men's basketball team has unveiled its retro jersey for a Jan. 28 Throwback night game against Butler, and the women's team has now shown off the jerseys it will don for its annual PinkZone game on Feb. 25 against Butler.

To view a photo gallery including all three jerseys, click here.

When it hosts Butler on Jan. 28 at 6 p.m., the Phoenix men will honor the program's past by sporting jerseys similar to those worn by Green Bay players in the late 70s and early 80s. The white jerseys with green and red trim include the old "UWGB" athletics logo. The Throwback Game promotions will feature a number of ticket discounts, throwback concession prices and a throwback youth jersey giveaway.

On Feb. 4 against Milwaukee at 1 p.m., Green Bay teams with Broadway Automotive and Bellin Health to raise awareness for all types of cancer and generate funds for the Patient Assistance Fund at The Cancer TEAM at Bellin Health, a fund that helps patients burdened by the financial side of cancer treatments. The game will mark the first time the Green Bay men's basketball team will wear black uniforms on its home court. For more information on the Black Out Cancer Initiative, please visit GreenBayPhoenix.com/BlackOut. The first 1,000 fans will receive an Alec Brown bobblehead doll.

The Black Out Cancer Initiative is an extension of a partnership between Bellin Health, Green Bay Athletics and Broadway Automotive that started with the Pink Zone Initiative and annual women's basketball Pink Zone game that have raised over $55,000 for the Bellin Patient Assistance Fund over the past four years.

The nationally-ranked Green Bay women's basketball team will host Butler for its PinkZone game on Feb. 25 at 1 p.m. The Phoenix players will play in black jerseys complete with pink trim, helping to raise awareness for breast cancer and generate funds for the Bellin Health Foundation. The first 1,000 fans will receive a Matt Bollant bobblehead doll.

Numerous jerseys from all three games will be auctioned off at GreenBayPhoenix.com/Auction.
