Athletics department to release "major statement" re: Kay Yow.

Link. (Here's another.)

This afternoon (Monday), NBC17 Sports Director Penn Holderness spoke with Mark Kimmel, Sports Information Director for North Carolina State women's basketball, and was told that in the next two days the school will release a major statement regarding Head Coach Kay Yow's role for the rest of the season.

Coach Yow has been suffering from an extremely low energy level while continuing to fight a recurrence of breast cancer, something she's been dealing with since 2006. Yow has missed the last four games since falling ill on the team's road trip to New York.

Kimmel says as of Monday afternoon, coach Yow has not been hospitalized, and she remains at her home while making regular visits to a clinic for treatment. Be sure to check out for the latest updates as the week progresses.

Best wishes, Kay.
