N.C. State women's hoops coach Kay Yow dies
North Carolina States Kay Yow, the Hall of Fame womens basketball coach who won more than 700 games while earning fans with her decades-long fight against breast cancer, died Saturday. She was 66.

Yow, first diagnosed with the disease in 1987, died in the morning at WakeMed Cary Hospital after being admitted last week, university spokeswoman Annabelle Myers said.

Everyone who had the privilege of knowing Kay Yow has a heavy heart today, N.C. State athletic director Lee Fowler said in a statement. She faced every opponent, whether on the basketball court of in a hospital room, with dignity and grace. She will be greatly missed.

1. such a sad thing
My mom loves women's college basketball. She really admired Kay for her fight against breast cancer, since she herself has Stage IV breast cancer.

3. VERY sad. I went to ODU and we always knew Kay was a class act all the way.
Here's hoping you get nothin' but net on the other side, Kay.
