Yow wins V award

Jim Valvano could always make Kay Yow laugh. An award named for her late friend made Yow smile again on Wednesday at the taping of the ESPY Awards in Los Angeles. Yow, who coached the N.C. State women’s basketball team to the Sweet 16 despite a recurrence of breast cancer, won the first Jimmy V ESPY Award for Perseverance. Yow’s speech and memories of her former Wolfpack colleague stood as the emotional highlight of the sports world’s version of the Oscars, which will be shown on ESPN at 9 p.m. Sunday.
