Tyler Trent, the Boilermakers superfan who died Tuesday at age 20 following a battle with bone cancer, will be honored during Thursday's men's basketball game between Purdue and Iowa.

Trent gained widespread attention after being featured on ESPN's College GameDay in October.

Players from both teams will wear #TylerStrong T-shirts as a tribute to Trent. The shirts will also be available for purchase online and at Mackey Arena, with 50 percent of net sales going to the Tyler Trent Cancer Research Endowment Fund.

#Purdue and @IowaHoops will both wear #TylerStrong shirts to honor @theTylerTrent at tomorrow night's contest at Mackey Arena. Fans are encouraged to wear theirs as well in support of Tyler.

Additionally, the Purdue student section will be chanting "cancer sucks" in replacement of "IU."
