The 10th Annual Heroes Hat game between Quinnipiac and Yale is set for a 7 p.m. start at High Point Solutions Arena. Quinnipiac won the first eight Heroes Hat before Yale won last season's match-up. The presentation of the Heroes Hat will take place following the game. The Heroes Hat was established in honor of those who risked or lost their lives following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It remembers Joseph Mascali (FDNY/Staten Island 5), father of former Quinnipiac golfer Chris Mascali '05, Jennifer Mascali '02 and current sophomore Katie Mascali '14.

Bobcat fans attending Saturday night's game are encouraged to bring a hat to donate to Don's Hat Rack. Don's Hat Rack was created in 1999 in memory of Donald Perrotti who lost his battle to cancer. The hat rack is located in Yale New Haven Children's Hospital where Don spent 6 years of his life.
