OSU To Remember
01/26/2011

STILLWATER – The Oklahoma State men’s basketball team will host the Texas Longhorns on Jan. 26, just one day shy of the 10th anniversary of the loss of 10 members of the OSU family in a plane crash.

OSU will honor those 10 men with a special halftime ceremony during the Texas game.

Former coach Eddie Sutton, as well as former players Andre Williams, Desmond Mason and Doug Gottlieb will be part of the halftime ceremony. OSU has invited back former student-athletes, athletic staff, coaches and student workers who were part of the 2000-2001 team or whose years in Stillwater overlapped that team.

Fans in attendance of the game will receive a unique commemorative T-shirt honoring those lost. The shirt will only be available at the game and will not be sold at any time.

In addition to the halftime ceremony, Oklahoma State has also planned a private gathering for family members of the 10 men prior to the game.
During the game, proceeds from the annual “Remember The 10” run will be donated to OSU Counseling Services.

The following day, on Jan. 27th, the 10-year anniversary of the plane crash that took place on the basketball team’s return to Stillwater from Boulder, Colo., Dr. David Bosserman, OSU’s former Vice President for Administration and Finance, along with his executive assistant, Nancy Horner, OSU physical plant director Rick Krysiak and Lt. Leon Jones of OSU Public Safety will visit the crash site in Colorado. Their visit includes some members of the Colorado emergency response teams from 2001. The group of OSU’s current and former employees has visited the crash site on the anniversary date for each of the past nine years.

At 6:37 p.m. on Jan. 27, the OSU Library Carillon will once again toll 10 times in honor of each of those that have been lost.

The men lost in the crash were Denver Mills, Nate Fleming, Dan Lawson, Jared Weiberg, Pat Noyes, Bill Teegins, Will Hancock, Brian Luinstra, Kendall Durfey and Bjorn Fahlstrom.

The Memorial Lobby remains the most visited area of Gallagher-Iba Arena.
