Women's basketball is a relatively small community. So when tragedy strikes, many of us -- not only the professionals who work in the game and who work in the media, but also those of us who are simply fans -- feel the loss as well.

Last night, the WBB community lost a couple of their own, tragically. A couple of good people: Oklahoma State Head Coach Kurt Budke and Assistant Coach Miranda Serna were killed when the single-engine plane in which they were traveling crashed in Perry County, Arkansas. The pilot and another passenger (neither yet identified) also died.

Coach Budke and Coach Serna were on a recruiting trip.

Our prayers and condolences go out to the families of all those who died, to the Oklahoma State community, and to the entire women's basketball community . . . who lost two of their own.

May they rest in peace.

Very sad for the entire Oklahoma State family. At times like this, we are again reminded that every moment of this life is precious.
