Yow Dies Peacefully after Battle with Cancer

One of the most beloved figures in NC State history and one of the most respected coaches in the nation, Women's Basketball Coach Kay Yow, died peacefully this morning after a long, heroic battle with breast cancer.

Yow, 66, had been supported by her family and her staff in the last several days and was even able to visit with her entire team at WakeMed Cary Hospital earlier this week. Yow, who was in her 38th year of coaching, will be remembered for the hundreds and thousands of lives she touched through basketball and through her tireless efforts to fight cancer.
