NORMAN — Alvan Adams, Blake Griffin, Stacey King, Eduardo Najera and Hollis Price are among the former OU basketball greats being welcomed back this weekend for the third annual Sooner Basketball Family Weekend alumni event.
Fans will be admitted for free to the Legends Alumni Game, scheduled for noon Saturday. After the game, Sooner fans can receive autographs from the attendees on the Lloyd Noble Center court.
The weekend began Friday morning with a Tip In Club Golf Classic, then continued with Friday evening's Wayman Tisdale Scholarship Fund Dinner at Lloyd Noble Center, where OU All-Americans and 2,000-point scorers were honored.
“Every reunion weekend, every legends weekend has been great,” said OU basketball coach Lon Kruger. “To see all those former players come back and not only players but coaches and managers, administrative folks, to come back and share those memories of their time is really fun to watch.
“This year with the All-Americans and 2,000-point scorers that we're celebrating, it will be even more special because they really are at the heart of the OU tradition from a basketball standpoint. It's a very good tradition.”
Last season, former Sooner Jozsef Szendrei scored 14 points and grabbed 24 rebounds in the Cream Team's 74-60 win over the Crimson Team.
