In past years, Oklahoma State fraternities, sororities, other students and fans pack into Gallagher-Iba Arena for a night of fun and celebration on the Friday of Homecoming.

Homecoming and Hoops had previously been called off, but coach Mike Boynton decided to plan his own Homecoming and Hoops-Remix presented by Homeland.

Instead of the hardwood, the event will take place on the Beta Theta Pi basketball court on Greek row.

The event is an important recruiting event for the basketball programs to bring in top prospects. OSU basketball has made a rise in recruiting over recent years and the fun night in Gallagher-Iba has a big selling point.

Boynton has made a point this school year to get back to the students after having no interaction in 2020 because of COVID-19. Now he’ll be able to host fans, alumni and students during the biggest football event of the season, Homecoming.

The night will take place on the court at 9 p.m. Oct. 29. Admission is free, but is first come, first serve. Both men’s and women’s teams will be represented as well as the spirit squad.

Reports are that Boynton will appear on a horse and a DJ will be at the event for music.
