RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State students are raising money for a memorial to the late women's basketball coach Kay Yow.

Students are working to raise $85,000 to complete the project. It would include a small garden and a bust of Yow in front of Reynolds Coliseum, where the Hall of Fame coach led the Wolfpack for more than three decades before her death last year following a long fight with cancer.

A news release from the school says students have raised more than $35,000 for the project through private donations, and T-shirt sales at home games and on campus. It is slated to be finished in April.
