2017 Langston University Basketball Homecoming Agenda

We have a lot of exciting activities planned and we hope this will be a time for former Lions to watch our nationally ranked men’s and women’s basketball march toward a bid to the NAIA National Tournament! Additionally, this will be a great time for current Lions to meet past Langston University greats!
Below you will find the agenda for this year’s homecoming which begins on Friday, Feb. 17 and concludes following the men’s basketball game on Saturday, Feb. 18.
