    Coach Kay Yow dies at age 66

    42-53 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Coach Kay Yow dies at age 66

    Wasn't she coaching earlier in the year? This seems quite sudden.

    I think she tried coaching a few games, but then announced she was going to sit the season out.

    Yes she was...and bone cancer can take your life relatively quickly (lost a family member to it). You can feel fine one day, and be in the most miserable pain the next, and in some cases, gone within the week.

    Very sad to see this happen. My prayers go out to her family. She was a legend in college basketball.

    Very class act. I'm glad she was able to die peacefully and at home, as they announced.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I had the honor of meeting Coach Yow on a couple of occasions and she was an even better human being than she was a coach. God bless her family and friends as they remember her great life and amazing fight.

    A very strong and inspiring woman. Sad to see her go, but her legacy will live on.
