Tulsa Shock to Honor Kurt Budke, Miranda Serna

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa Shock is partnering with Oklahoma State University to honor the memory of Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna at all 2012 Shock home games this season. 

Eighteen different honorees for each of the Shock's home games will be selected by a nomination process that will be overseen by Oklahoma State Alumni and the Tulsa Shock ownership group.

The honorees at each home game will receive four (4) courtside tickets and will be recognized during the game. Honorees will have exhibited a positive attitude while exemplifying Coach Budke and Serna's passion for family, team and the game of basketball. 

"Oklahoma State University applauds the Tulsa Shock for honoring Kurt Budke and Miranda Serna by recognizing individuals who are living out what they believed and coached," Oklahoma State university President Burns Hargis said. "They were tremendous ambassadors for OSU and the game of basketball and this is a wonderful tribute."

"We as an organization were deeply saddened by the tragedy at Oklahoma State University this past season and wanted to concentrate our efforts to honoring the memories of Coach Budke and Serna," Shock President Steve Swetoha said. "We hope this recognition will help amplify the tremendous efforts of both coaches at Oklahoma State University."
