NC State coach Yow feeling better after recent hospitalization

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Kay Yow said Wednesday she's feeling better after spending a few days in the hospital.

North Carolina State's Hall of Fame coach said during the ACC's media day that she was hospitalized because of a change in her cancer treatment.

Yow says it started after a round of chemotherapy about three weeks ago when "my body just couldn't handle that combination of drugs."

She checked into a hospital Oct. 8, the same day her players left campus for fall break. She was released the following Monday, coached the Wolfpack's first practice last Friday and hasn't missed a practice.

Yow, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, said she feels her best during basketball season because "I have tunnel vision and I forget everything else about my body."
