She was fairly young considering that it seems like she has been NC State's coach forever. I saw this news when I first got up today, and wasn't sure I was seeing it until it was repeated again.

I guess I'm not completely surprised as it seems she was having a worse time of things lately and having to step away from coaching this year... but she had been fighting so long you just got used to her and began to think she might outlast the cancer.

Coach Yow is a big deal in this area and will be sorely missed.
