Sports Revolution 2/3

The Sports Revolution talked about the N.C. State Women’s team’s first game back on the court following the passing of Kay Yow.  We heard from Stephanie Glance’s post-game comments against BC.  Then the guys jumped into a conversation about the N.C. State men’s team and their weekend game against that other school that wears pansy blue.  James and Preston sat on opposite sides of the room while they discussed Ben McCauley’s hard/intentional (you decide) foul on UNC’s Copeland.  The Rev went around the rest of the ACC talking Wake’s win over Duke and monumental collapse against Georgia Tech.

Then it was time for Super Bowl wrap-up, the gang discussed their favorite commercials, the Boss’ slide at halftime, and the Steelers last second win over the Cards.

Be sure to join the Revolution every week on Tuesdays from 7 to 8 pm and check out the blog and podcast of past shows as well. Let us know what you think! We want to hear from you, post on the blog, call us during the show 860-0881 and give us your thoughts!

Tribute to Kay Yow aired on WKNC

More than 1,000 people attended a tribute to the late Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Coach Kay Yow, according to an article in today’s Technician. WKNC was honored to carry the event live and reproduce the audio for you here. Many thanks to WKNC Engineer Austin Page, Evening Exchange host John Boyer and everyone else at WKNC who made this broadcast possible.

The hour-long tribute features words by Director of Basketball Operations for Wolfpack Women’s basketball Robin Pate, Director of Athletics Coach Lee Fowler, Chancellor James L. Oblinger, Assistant Coach Jenny Palmateer and Interim Coach Stephanie Glance. As pictures do not translate well on radio, a video tribute to Coach Yow was not included. We instead rebroadcast an interview from Tuesday’s Sports Revolution featuring Patrick Kinas, play-by-play announcer for the women’s basketball team.

Sports Revolution 1/27

On the Sports Revolution this week, Preston took the week off to celebrate her 21st birthday. No worries, she’ll be back next week. In the meantime, Derrick Thornton filled in for her.  The guys had a touching interview with Patrick Kinas, play-by-play voice of Wolfpack Women’s Basketball, on the passing of the late, great Coach Kay Yow.  The guys gave their insight on the State men’s basketball game Tuesday evening against Miami, and discussed what it would take for the Red and White to pull off the huge upset of that powdery-blue colored school that no one really likes to talk about.  The guys hit on the other big ACC match up this week, Wake vs. Duke, and gave an overview of that game and its’ implications on the conference race this season.  Then, oh yeah… it’s Super Bowl week! So the Rev discussed what Arizona needs to do if they are going to pull off their fourth straight upset in the playoffs this season.

Be sure to tune in every Tuesday night from 7 to 8 pm for all the fun, get in your questions and comments on the blog or give us a call during the show at 860-0881.
