Fans of NIU women’s basketball can watch the action Wednesday, Dec. 17, for the price of a canned good and $1.

During the 7 p.m. “Hoops for Soups” game versus Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, anyone who brings a canned good to the doors of the Convocation Center can then buy a ticket for a buck.

Meanwhile, head coach Kathi Bennett will donate 50 cents to DeKalb’s Hope Haven homeless shelter for every $1 ticket purchased.

All canned food items will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Bennett and the Huskies will take on the Eastern Illinois University Panthers at noon today in Charleston. They continue their Thanksgiving holiday schedule at the Lady Rebel Round-up in Las Vegas, where they take on South Dakota State at 4:30 p.m. (CT) Saturday, Nov. 29. Sunday’s game pits NIU against either host UNLV or Delaware.
