MORGANTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - WVU men’s basketball will play Akron in an exhibition game to benefit the Norma Mae Huggins Cancer Research Endowment on Oct. 29.

Norma Mae, head coach Bob Huggins’ mother, passed in 2003 from colon cancer. The endowment funds clinical cancer research trials in West Virginia.

The Mountaineers last played a charity game in 2019 when they hosted Duquesne to benefit the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund.
