Two OSU Women’s Basketball Coaches Perish in Arkansas Plane Crash

KSCB News - November 18, 2011 9:07 am

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State University says women’s

basketball coach Kurt Budke (‘BUD-kee) and assistant coach Miranda

Serna were killed in a plane crash in central Arkansas.

The university said in a news release Friday that the two were

on a recruiting trip to Arkansas when the plane crashed near

Perryville, about 45 miles west of Little Rock.

The university says the plane’s pilot and another passenger also

died in the crash. Their names were not released and OSU said they

were not associated with the university.

Ten men associated with the OSU men’s basketball team died in a

plane crash in Colorado in January 2001

Former Lady Saint coach Jim Littell will be the interim head coach

for the Cowgirls who are 1-0 after a win over Rice. OSU will not play

their scheduled games for this weekend. OSU counselers and athletic

staff are offering assistance to the Cowgirl student athletes.
