Olson donates $1 million for cancer research

TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona basketball coach Lute Olson and his family are making a $1 million gift to the Arizona Cancer Center in the name of his late wife, Bobbi. The gift will benefit the Bobbi Olson Endowment for Ovarian Cancer Research. Bobbi, Olson's first wife, died of ovarian cancer.

''This gift is something the family has been planning for some time,'' Olson said in a statement released by the university on Monday. ''We feel it's so important that Bobbi's legacy stay alive and we continue to support her dream of finding a cure for this cancer.''
