In addition, fans may visit Cook Hall throughout the day as the Pfau-Shine Legacy Court hours will be extended to remain open until 7:30 p.m.

The autograph session will feature both the men's and women's teams and this year includes a number of former IU men's basketball greats including Damon Bailey, Archie Dees, Brian Evans, Matt Nover, Wayne Radford, Jimmy Rayl, and Landon Turner.

Following the autograph sessions, both teams will be introduced, but details of each team's activities are still being finalized.
