UMaine Women’s Basketball Coach Shaves Head for Fundraiser

Richard Barron, the head coach of the University of Maine women’s basketball team, had his head shaved for the Play4Kay Initiative after Wednesday’s game against Hartford at Alfond Arena.

Barron had pledged to shave his head if UMaine reached a goal of $10,000 for Play4Kay, which raises funds for the Kay Yow Foundation to support breast cancer research. UMaine hit the goal with $10,255 and was listed, as of Feb. 16, the top team out of hundreds of colleges and high schools, in online giving.

Yow was the N.C. State women’s basketball coach who died from breast cancer in 2009. Barron knew Yow and was an assistant coach at N.C. State in the two years after her death.
