NEW YORK (AP) Women's basketball teams across the country found many different ways to honor cancer survivors this week as part of the Play4Kay initiative.

Texas A&M and Iowa had their players wear names on their jerseys of people who had touched their lives and battled cancer.

Aggies coach Gary Blair had a jersey with the name of ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe on the back for the team's game Thursday against LSU. Rowe, who fought desmoplastic melanoma, a skin cancer, was the first to interview Blair on the court in Indianapolis after A&M won the NCAA championship in 2011.
