Kay Yow , Hall of Fame Women’s Basketball Coach, Dies at 66 .
Source: NYT

"Kay Yow, the Hall of Fame basketball coach who became an inspiring figure while continuing to coach the North Carolina State women’s team during a long battle with cancer, died Saturday in Cary, N.C. She was 66. . .

Yow coached the United States women’s team to gold medals at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the 1986 world championships and the 1986 Goodwill Games. She received the Wooden award as the Division I women’s basketball coach of the year in 2000 and was inducted as the fifth women’s coach in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame at Springfield, Mass., in 2002. Her career record was 737-344.

For all her accomplishments, it seemed that nothing surpassed the determination she displayed in returning to her coaching post after a two-month leave early in the 2006-7 season to undergo cancer treatment.">>>

3. I'll give you that...
Vivian Stringer, Pat Summit and I have had shed tears all day.
They did a piece on her on ESPN that was heart breaking.

Kay Yow could coach her ass off.

She deserves all the accolades coming to her.

Go Wolfpack!

4. I went to ODU but always knew Kay was a class act. Still sets the standard.
Here's Kay gets nothing but net from here on out.
