Coach Blair about Coach Yow

"It means a lot to be able to wear the pink ribbon upside down in remembrance of Kay Yow. Kay was very special. We were in the Final Four together and are the old cats in the profession. She did everything with class. As coaches, that's who we envied; someone who didn't have a large ego and someone who gave back to the game. Even though she knew her time was short, she has already touched so many lives across the country with her testimony. Kay has championed the cause, but there are a lot of people out there who are affected by the cause. Whatever we can do, we need to find a way. If we can build off of her legacy similar to how the men's game did with former North Carolina State head coach Jim Valvano, that's a rallying cry. It's a win-win situation not just for cancer, but for an awareness of what women's basketball can do. It's not all about the W's and the L's, it's about the classy people in this game who want to do their part in finding a cure." -- Texas A&M Head Coach Gary Blair on Kay Yow
