DURHAM, N.C.-  Tickets to the 2013 Jimmy V Women’s Basketball Classic, which will be hosted at Duke University, will be available for purchase this Friday, Oct. 4.  The contest features defending NCAA Champion Connecticut at Duke on Tuesday, Dec. 17 at 7:00 p.m., on ESPN2.  

The contest will conclude the seventh annual Jimmy V Week, an initiative taking place Dec. 3-17 across multiple ESPN platforms and programs featuring special content to help raise funds for cancer research. In six years, Jimmy V Week has generated $6,761,437 in total contributions for The V Foundation for Cancer Research, including a record-setting number of $1,591,108 in 2013.

The 12th annual women’s game will be played in Durham, N.C., at historic Cameron Indoor Stadium on Duke’s campus.

The Huskies are coming off their program-record eighth NCAA National Championship after posting a 35-4 overall record. It was the first of Connecticut's championships when the Huskies didn't win a regular-season or BIG EAST Championship. Duke registered a 33-3 overall record in 2012-13, advanced to the NCAA Championship Elite Eight and won its eighth ACC Championship.

The V Foundation
The V Foundation for Cancer Research was founded in 1993 by ESPN and the late Jim Valvano, legendary North Carolina State basketball coach and ESPN commentator. Since 1993, The Foundation has funded more than $100 million in cancer research grants nationwide. It awards 100 percent of all direct cash donations to cancer research and related programs. Due to generous donors, the Foundation has an endowment that covers administrative expenses.  The Foundation awards peer-reviewed grants through a competitive awards process strictly supervised by a Scientific Advisory Board. For more information on The V Foundation or to make a donation, please visit www.jimmyv.org.
