Jay Bilas Shows Support For Pearl Washington on Sportscenter

Jay Bilas showed up on ESPN today wearing a Pearl t-shirt.

The #PrayersForPearl campaign might not have the same publicity right now that it did a month ago, but leave it to Jay Bilas to do something about that.

The ESPN personality appeared on Sportscenter this morning wearing one the "Pearl" t-shirts that Syracuse Orange players have been wearing in recent weeks. Bilas didn't mention the campaign but you couldn't miss the message during the entire three minute-forty second interview.

Pearl continues to receive treatment for his brain tumor and is aware of the campaign and it's success. The GoFundMe for Washington has raised over $50,000 and while it's been nine days since it received a donation, that should pickup again now.

Well done, Jay.
