OSU To Hold Memorial For 4 Who Died In Crash

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State students, faculty and staff are gathering to remember four people - including two women's basketball coaches - killed in an airplane crash in central
Arkansas.

A memorial service will be held Monday afternoon at Gallagher-Iba Arena on the Stillwater campus for head basketball coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna, alumnus Olin
Branstetter and his wife, Paula.

Branstetter was piloting the single-engine plane when it crashed Thursday afternoon near Perryville. The flight was en route to Little Rock, where Budke and Serna were going to watch prospective recruits play at a game.

Their deaths come 10 years after a plane crash that killed 10 people associated with the men's basketball program. OSU spokesman Gary Shutt says school officials will take another
look at the travel policy.
