Chris LailContributor IJanuary 24, 2009

Hall-of-Fame coach Kay Yow passed away this morning after a long, hard-fought battle with cancer. She was 66.

Kay was first diagnosed with Cancer in 1987 and fought long and hard to be an inspiration to others. She won more than 700 games during her 34-year career with North Carolina State University. She has been a great representative for the Wolfpack and will be missed.

Please make donations to the Jimmy V Foundation to help fight this dreaded disease.
