  • The University of Oklahoma men's basketball program will welcome back former OU players and coaches for the third annual Sooner Basketball Family Weekend alumni event this Friday and Saturday.
     
    Among the activities scheduled for the two-day reunion are a Tip In Club Golf Classic, a Friday evening Wayman Tisdale Scholarship Fund Dinner on the Lloyd Noble Center main floor honoring OU's All-Americans and 2,000-point scorers, and a Saturday Legends Alumni Game at noon. The public is invited to attend each of the three events. Fans will be admitted to the Legends Alumni Game free of charge (must enter via the east doors).
     
    The Tip In Club Golf Classic will be held at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club (hosted the 2013 U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship). Friday's dinner costs $50 per person.
     
    Former OU players and coaches will be available for autographs on the court after the Legends Alumni 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 poster.
     
    Last year, a crowd of nearly 4,000 watched Jozsef Szendrei (2001-03) score 14 points and grab 24 rebounds to lead the Cream Team to a 74-60 win over the Crimson Team in the Legends Alumni Game.
     
    Featured honorees who will be on hand this year are Alvan Adams, Harvey Grant, Blake Griffin, Darryl "Choo" Kennedy, Stacey King, Eduardo Najera, Hollis Price and Jeff Webster, as well as family members of the late Lester Lane and Wayman Tisdale.
