TCU’s Dixon to take part in Coaches vs. Cancer initiative

TCU men’s basketball coach Jamie Dixon will join five colleagues from the Lone Star State to take part in the Coaches vs. Cancer Texas Tip-Off on Sept. 29 in Dallas.

The event, slated for the House of Blues, will include Dixon, Texas coach Shaka Smart, Baylor coach Scott Drew, Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy, North Texas coach Tony Benford and SMU coach Tim Jankovich. The program will be moderated by ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla, with ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe, a cancer survivor, as the guest speaker.

The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball coaches that has raised more than $100 million for the America Cancer Society since 1993.
