Yow's players surpirised her with not only pink uniforms for Sunday's game against Boston College, but each has the name Yow on the back, a tribute to their coach.

At halftime, two assistants from the Tennessee Lady Vols showed up to present Yow with a check for $10,000 that they raised for the cause as a team last summer.

Yow was extremely grateful for the efforts by all.
