This week, ESPN announcedthat longtime sideline reporter Holly Rowe would need surgery to remove a tumor in her chest. Rowe had the procedure performed on Tuesday.
Since then, Rowe has received a tremendous amount of support, and even earned a shout-out from LSU head football coach Les Miles on ESPNU's signing day coverage yesterday.
During a break in last night's Kansas-Kansas State basketball game on ESPN2, the television broadcast showed a video of KU head coach Bill Self, his team behind him, offering a message of support for Rowe. ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla also makes an appearance at the end, and it's clear Rowe was very grateful for the gesture.
Well I am in tears. Just humbled and amazed by the love my sports families have shown to me! Thanks @kuhoops and @franfraschilla
Awesome job by Self, his team and Fraschilla. It is clear the profound impact Rowe has had on the people she's worked with and covered over the years.
