The two-time defending NCAA Champion Alabama gymnastics hosts No. 15 Kentucky on Friday, Jan. 25 in the Crimson Tide's ninth annual Power of Pink meet.
Sarah Patterson's Power of Pink initiative began in the fall of 2004 and the first "pink" meet was Feb. 4, 2005, with the Tide taking on Auburn. This Friday's Power of Pink meet against Kentucky will once again feature both teams in pink leotards.
Tickets are available through the Alabama Ticket Office (205.348.2262) located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum, or online at RollTide.com.
Alabama also faced Kentucky in the 2011 Power of Pink meet on Feb. 18, with the Tide coming out on top 197.275-194.850. Overall, the Crimson Tide is undefeated (18-0) when wearing its pink leotards.
Friday's pink meet is the second of the season for the Tide, after opening the season with Missouri's Pink Out on Jan. 11. Following this Friday's Power of Pink meet against Kentucky, Alabama will also compete in pink at LSU on March 8.
