The Oklahoma Sooners men's basketball program is making strides toward reaching its former glory. Under the direction of Lon Kruger, fan support as well as maintaining relationships with former players remains a key focus. Connecting current players to others who paved the way for Sooner basketball instills a sense of pride, tradition, and family. Following that notion, the program has put together a third Annual Sooner Basketball Family Weekend slotted for August 23-24.
With several events taking place throughout the weekend, the spotlight falls upon the Alumni Legends Game. At the gathering last summer, 4,000 fans watched current strength and conditioning coach, Jozsef Szendrei motor his way to 14 points and an astounding 24 rebounds. Now, players like Blake Griffin, Hollis Price, and Eduardo Najera will be in attendance and the best part about it is...IT'S FREE!
After the game, players and coaches will be available for autographs as fans pose for the opportunity to be on the annual team schedule poster.
