After 300 protesters revolted against Penn State University’s anti-gay coach last month, protest organizer Penny Gardener expects a large turnout for the 8 p.m. Feb. 1 game against Michigan State University.
“MSU was the first Big Ten school to hold such a protest last year when MSU played Penn State,” Gardner said.
Gardner noted the match at Breslin Center would have at least 100 lavender-sporting protesters. So far, The Lavender Menace, the name used for women against Portland, has 50 shirt orders in addition to 60 sold last year.
“It should be quite the lavender showing,” Gardner said.
Fifty-five season ticket holders will be in section 126, others will be protesting in section 122 and students will congregate at the south end of the court in the bleachers under the basket, according to Gardner.
“Last year, rainbow shirts, lavender and other markers of LGBT pride were seen throughout the stands,” Gardner said.
