Kay Yow Dies

I added a new site to my links:  She’s a Baller – all things having to do with women’s b-ball.  In the course of doing that, I saw the sad news that Kay Yow has died at age 66, after a long battle with Breast cancer.

Yow had a record of 737-344 in 38 years — 34 years with the Wolfpack — in a career filled with countless milestones. She coached the U.S. Olympic team to a gold medal in 1988, won four Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championships, earned 20 NCAA tournament bids and reached the Final Four in 1998.

She also was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame in 2002, while the school dedicated “Kay Yow Court” in Reynolds Coliseum in 2007.

But for many fans, Yow was best defined by her unwavering resolve while fighting cancer, from raising awareness and money for research to staying with her team through the debilitating effects of the disease and chemotherapy treatments.

NC State’s Monday game against Wake Forest has been postponed until February 10.

    This was a tribute that I paid to Coach Yow earlier in the week, which appeared in the Deseret News in Salt lake city. If interested please copy and paste to your browser.
