OSU hoops event Friday

From staff, wire reports

— Oklahoma State’s athletics department, in conjunction with Homeland, will host the sixth annual Homecoming & Hoops on Friday inside Gallagher-Iba Arena. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the event gets started at 9 p.m.

Homecoming & Hoops combines the traditional football homecoming festivities with the unofficial kickoff to the basketball season. It is the first opportunity that fans will have to check out the newest members of the Cowboy and Cowgirl basketball teams.

The event is free. However, everyone attending must pick up a ticket outside on either the northeast or southeast corners of Gallagher-Iba Arena. The ticket will include a $5 Homeland coupon which will entitle the holder to food samples courtesy of Homeland.
