    Oklahoma State University women's basketball coach dies in crash

    (Reuters) - Oklahoma State University's women's basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna died Thursday night in a plane crash in Arkansas, the university said in a statement on its website on Friday.

    The pilot and one other person who was not affiliated with the university also were killed, the school said.

    The coaches were on a recruiting trip when the plane crashed in Perry County, Arkansas.

    "The Oklahoma State family is devastated by this tragedy," said OSU President Burns Hargis. "Our hearts and prayers go out to the families of Kurt Budke, Miranda Serna and the other victims."

    Very tragic. It's been almost exactly 10 years since the OSU men's basketball team lost 10 players and coaches in a plane crash. Budke was an excellent coach who was on his way to getting this OSU women's program back in the top 10. Man, this school has endured a lot of tragedy.
