RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State has welcomed back Wes Moore to lead its women's basketball program.
Moore spent two years as an assistant to late Hall of Famer Kay Yow, giving him roots in a tradition-rich program that has fallen off in recent years. It's his job to build the Wolfpack back up again to a team that routinely finishes in the top half of the Atlantic Coast Conference and makes the NCAA tournament.
Moore said during a news conference Monday that Yow's successful run proves the Wolfpack can win consistently.
Yow's sister, athletic director Debbie Yow, says Moore's link to the program is "icing on the cake" compared to his successful resume.
The school announced Friday it had hired Moore from Chattanooga, where he reached nine NCAA tournaments in 15 seasons.
