OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The New Orleans Hornets will wear red uniforms when they host Sacramento in Oklahoma City on Valentine's Day.

The uniforms are both part of the team's ``Valentine's at the Hive'' promotion and an effort to promote heart health in conjunction with ``Heart Awareness Month.''

All jerseys worn by Hornets players for the game will be autographed and auctioned off on Hornets-dot-com beginning February 15th at noon. Money raised from the auction will benefit the American Heart Association and Hornets Charities.

Also _ Hornets guard Chris Paul will provide roses to first 1,000 women through the doors for the game and eligible bachelors ages 18-to-25 can enter the ``Win a Date with a Honeybee'' contest at halftime.
