Wolfpack Inspired By Yow to Knock Off Undefeated Duke

That seems to be the most logical explaination of why the NC State women's basketball team handed #1 Duke their first loss of the season, 70-65, in the semifinals of the ACC Tournament.

State had won nine of ten prior to their loss to North Carolina today since Hall of Fame coach Kay Yow has returned following chemotherapy treatments (which she continues to receive) to combate a recurrance of breast cancer.

As writer Graham Hays explains it, "When you have a coach who is battling breast cancer for the third time in 20 years and has to stay in her hotel room to conserve energy when the team goes out to eat, the clock ticking above the court doesn't scare anyone."
