Today, one of basketball’s legends will be laid to rest. NC State Women’s Basketball head coach Kay Yow lost her battle with cancer this past weekend. As an NCSU alum, this loss hits especially close to home for me. During my time at the school, I was fortunate enough to work in the athletic department and meet Coach Yow. She was always kind and friendly, with an eager smile and a warm laugh. Her valiant fight against this horrible disease, and her amazing career as a coach, will live on.
