NORMAN – The University of Oklahoma men's basketball program will welcome back former OU players and coaches for the seventh annual Sooner Basketball Family Weekend alumni event Aug. 25 and 26 (Friday and Saturday). Activities scheduled for the two-day reunion are a Tip In Club Golf Tournament, a Friday evening Tip In Club Dinner on the Lloyd Noble Center main floor and the Legends Alumni Game on Saturday. The public is invited to attend each of the three events.
The weekend’s highlight, Saturday’s Legends Alumni Game, will tip off at noon and be open to the public free of charge (fans must enter via the east doors). Former OU players and coaches will be available for autographs on the court after the game, and concession stands will be open throughout the afternoon. Fans in attendance will once again have the opportunity to be photographed with current and former OU basketball players for the annual team schedule poster.
