2018 KAY YOW AWARD
 
 
BOSTON (MA) -- Central Michigan’s Sue Guevara is the recipient of the 2018 Kay Yow award.
 
Guevara, now in her 12th season at Central Michigan, turned in the best season in program history. The Chippewas won a program-record 30 games, which included two wins in the NCAA Tournament to advance to the Sweet Sixteen. 
 
CMU, which was seeded 11th in its region, upset No. 6 seed LSU and No. 3 seed Ohio State before falling to No. 2 seed Oregon. The two NCAA Tournament wins were the first in school history. 
 
The Chippewas advanced to the NCAA Tournament after winning the Mid-American Conference tournament tiitle. They also won the regular-season title for the seecond consecutive season. It’s the first time the program has accomplished that feat since 1984-85.
 
CMU finished ranked No. 20 in the final USA Today women’s basketball Top 25 coaches’ poll, which was released on Monday.  The Chippewas were also ranked No. 1 in the final Women’s Mid-Major Top 25, which was released by CollegeInsider.com. They were ranked No. 6 heading into the NCAA Tournamen.

The Kay Yow Award was established last year to honor the Division I women's head coach who embodies not only a winning spirit but who also displays great character both on and off the court.

Yow was a coaching legend who led NC State to 737 wins during her 34 seasons at the school. She was wildly successful in every forum in which she coached, leading gold medal winners at the 1981 World University Games, the 1986 Goodwill Games, 1986 World Championship Games and the 1988 Olympic Games.
