Rest in Peace Kay Yow

Kay Yow

Today college basketball lost an extraordinary coach and person in Kay Yow. Yow was the NC State women’s basketball for 34 years and won more than 700 games in a career filled with 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. Yow had been fighting cancer for over 20 years and unfortunately at the age of 66 she lost the battle. I would like to say thank you to Kay for her impact on cancer research and for everything she did at NC State. You will be missed, but never forgotten!
