Kay Yow















The state of North Carolina is mourning the loss of a great woman, Kay Yow. She lost her fight with breast cancer early Saturday morning. She was a great coach but an even greater person. She is the only full time head basketball North Carolina State has ever had. She was diagnosed years ago with breast cancer. It went into remission but came back several times over the last few years. She has raised so much for breast cancer research. This woman has touched so many lives. We take our basketball seriously in NC but we are all missing Kay Yow today.

WOW, it wasn't that long ago, they had a big story about her on the news and made it sound like she's on the road to recovery. My thoughts are prayers are with her family.
