ESPN reporter Holly Rowe is known as a fighter.
Two years ago, Rowe was so determined to get an interview with Kansas State's Thomas Gipson, after they lost to rival the Wildcats, that she climbed a scorer's table during a court storming, Yahoo Sports recounted.
Holly also kept a point guard, Juwa Staten, on his feet so she could ask him about a game-winning layup against the Jayhawks last year. On Monday night, Rowe helped cover the Texas-Baylor basketball game (Texas won), the eve of a serious surgery to remove a second tumor from her chest.
"If Rowe fights cancer with the ferocity she fights through a crowd, there's little doubt she'll be healthy again in no time," wrote Jeff Eisenberg.
Indeed, as Holly lay recovering from her surgery later Tuesday, she tweeted a photo of herself in the hospital with a college basketball game playing on TV in the background. She told fans that her surgery went well.
