HBO’s Real Sports to Revisit Tragedies at Oklahoma State University

Courtesy of our friends at HBO Sports:

Now in its 18th season, REAL SPORTS WITH BRYANT GUMBEL presents its 180th edition, available in HDTV, TUESDAY, MARCH 20 (10:00 p.m. ET/PT & 9:00 p.m. CT), exclusively on HBO.

Segments include:

Oklahoma State Tragedies. In Jan. 2001, the Oklahoma State men’s basketball team and staff boarded two small jets and a turbo-prop plane that were to take them home following a loss to Colorado.  But over Colorado, the turbo-prop plummeted 23,000 feet, crashing into a field and killing all on board, including two players, six staff members and both pilots.  Ten years later, in Nov. 2011, tragedy struck Oklahoma State again when women’s basketball head coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna, along with an 82-year-old pilot and his wife, were killed when their single-engine plane crashed during an Arkansas recruiting trip.  REAL SPORTS’ Armen Keteyian returns to the Oklahoma State campus to see how the community is moving on from the latest tragedy and pose the same question he asked in his investigation of the first crash ten years ago:  Could this disaster have been prevented?
