NORMAN — The fourth annual Sooner Basketball Family Weekend comes to a close Saturday with the Legends Alumni Game.

Admission to the game, which starts at noon, is free of charge. Fans will be allowed on the court for autographs with past players and coaches after the game.

Also following the game, fans will have the opportunity to get in a picture with current and former players for use in OU’s annual schedule poster.

“Our staff and players are really looking forward to what has become one of the highlights of our offseason each year,” Sooners coach Lon Kruger said. “It’s fun for everyone to reconnect with each other and to interact with our great fans.”

The weekend events started Friday with the Tip In Golf Classic at Jimmie Austin OU Golf Course before the Wayman Tisdale Scholarship Fund Dinner on Friday night at Lloyd Noble Center.

OU’s 1,000-point scorers were honored at the dinner.

Many of the 40 members of the club are expected to be at Saturday’s game, including four of the top five leading scorers — Jeff Webster (2,281 points), Tim McCalister (2,275), Choo Kennedy (2,097) and Stacey King (2,008).

The late Tisdale, OU’s all-time leading scorer with 2,661 career points, will be represented by his widow, Regina Tisdale.

Among the other members of the 1,000-point club expected to be on hand are Brent Price, Hollis Price and Terry Stotts. Aaron McGhee, the second-leading scorer on Oklahoma’s 2002 Final Four team (behind Hollis Price), is making his first return to campus since his playing days for the Sooners.

Other former players expected to participate in festivities include Skeeter Henry, Tim Heskett, Longar Longar, Ted Owens, Renzi Stone and Quannas White.
