Before moving to the Event Center, both Bulldog basketball teams will play the annual SWOSU Classic in Rankin Williams Fieldhouse, providing an opportunity to welcome back some of the best players, teams, coaches and cheerleaders to ever represent Southwestern Oklahoma State University.

The women’s team will face Colorado Mesa at 5:30 pm while the men host Angelo State at 7:30 pm. Further details about the event will be announced during the fall.
