Media Cover Play 4Kay Women’s Basketball Game

The Bangor Daily News, WABI (Channel 5) and WLBZ (Channel 2) covered the University of Maine women’s basketball team’s Play 4Kay game. The team raised $13,585 for the Kay Yow Foundation to support breast cancer research. Coach Richard Barron, who dyed his hair pink for the game, made good on his promise to shave his head if the team met its goal of $10,000. Play4Kay is named after Yow, a longtime North Carolina State women’s coach who died of breast cancer in 2009.
