GREEN DOT - WashU will be wearing green jerseys Saturday to promote WashU's Green Dot bystander intervention program. WashU Athletics is partnering with the Relationship & Sexual Violence (RSVP) Prevention Center on campus to raise awareness and education about the importance of creating a community where violence isn't tolerated. The Green Dot Program strategy empowers everyone to play a part in creating a culture of respect. The one-of-a-kind game-worn jerseys will be auctioned off to support campus programming and services via RSVP and the campus Green Dot Program.
THE SERIES - WashU and Millsaps are meeting for the ninth time in school history – and for the first time since 1987. Millsaps leads the all-time series between the two teams 8-0. The teams first met in 1978.
