Okla. State women’s coaches die in Ark. plane crash
The head coach of top-ranked Baylor, Kim Mulkey, said the deaths would have a wide impact.
“There’s a bigger picture out there and it’s not a basketball game, it puts life in perspective.” Mulkey said. “I feel for the Oklahoma State community. How many more tragedies can they endure?”
After Hargis‘ news conference, tearful Oklahoma State staff members and supporters comforted each other in the hallway of Heritage Hall. Later, the university announced that a public memorial service for the coaches will be held Monday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
Throughout the day Thursday, supporters came through the basketball arena’s lobby to write messages of remembrance and notes of encouragement to the team on banners laid out near pictures of the four who were killed.
Former Cowgirl Taylor Hardeman wrote: “I will never forget how much better you made me as a person, player and alum. Thanks for the memories. God bless you both. You will be missed.”
