CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

College of Charleston Athletics will honor the Emanuel AME Church community during the men’s and women’s basketball games on Friday, a news release says. 

At 4 p.m., the men’s team will host a silent auction featuring “We Are All Charleston” game-worn, numbered warm-up shirts at TD Arena on Meeting Street. 

According to a press release, a member of the Emanuel AME Choir will sing the national Anthem before the men's game. The auction ends at halftime.

Both the men's and women's teams will hold a moment of silence prior to tip-off in remembrance of the victims, survivors and members of the church. 

The release says the women’s basketball team will also wear on their jerseys a blue patch embroidered with an image of a Palmetto tree and nine doves for the entire 2015- 2016 season.
