 STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma State University commemorated the eighth anniversary of a plane crash that killed 10 men associated with the basketball program on Tuesday.
Despite frigid and icy weather that resulted in the cancellation of classes, the university kept open the lobby of Gallagher-Iba Arena, where a memorial to the 10 men is located. As in previous years, people left flowers and other mementos at the memorial.

The annual plans called for the university's Library Carillon to toll 10 times in honor of each of those who died.
The plane crashed Jan. 27, 2001, after the Cowboys had played at Colorado. The plane had taken off from the Jefferson County Airport outside Boulder, Colo., and went down a short time later about 40 miles east of Denver in a snow-covered pasture near the town of Strasburg.

``It was one of those defining moments that you have in life,'' university President Burns Hargis, an Oklahoma State alumnus, said of the crash. ``It's still hard to believe it happened, and none of us are sure why. But I think we've moved through a lot of stages of grief and now we honor their memory.''
At halftime of Monday's game, executive committee members for the second annual ``Remember the 10 Run'' presented a gift of $20,000 to the university's counseling department.
