RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA (TICKER)North Carolina State womens basketball coach Kay Yow died Saturday after a long fight against breast cancer. She was 66.

The Hall of Fame coach had announced January 6 that she was taking a leave of absence for the remainder of the season to address health issues related to her stage-four breast cancer, first diagnosed in 1987.

Yow first experienced a recurrence of the disease during the 2004-05 season.

She was in her 34th season at North Carolina State.
