Stillwater, Oklahoma —The Oklahoma State men's basketball coach Travis Ford announced Friday the team will hold an open practice and autograph session Oct. 19.

The session is open to all student season-ticket holders and the general public will take place Wednesday, Oct. 19 from 3-6 p.m.

"This is just a little 'Thank You' to the more than 3,000 students who have already purchased season tickets for the upcoming season," Ford said. "We certainly appreciate everything that the student body does for this program, and this is just a small way that we can show them our appreciation.

The open practice will begin at 3 pm in the main gym of Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The autograph session will follow the practice in the east lobby of the OSU Athletics Center. Each fan will be limited to one item for signatures.

"Perhaps we'll also get some students who are on the fence about purchasing tickets to come over as well and get an exclusive, first-hand look at how exciting this team will be."

Fans who are interested should enter the OSU Athletics Center through the east lobby and go to the concourse level, where seating will be available in the 200-level sections.
