Fans of Oklahoma Baptist University basketball can purchase the definitive history of Bison and Lady Bison round ball during a January 14 book signing on the OBU campus.
John W. Parrish, OBU interim president, wrote the recently published book OBU Hoops: A History of Oklahoma Baptist University Bison and the Lady Bison Basketball 1911-2007, as part of the university’s Centennial Book Series. The longtime OBU administrator’s personal connections to Bison basketball started in 1964, when he was sports information director for the OBU team which reached the NAIA title game.
The book signing will be from 4-6 p.m., in OBU’s Geiger Center room 222. OBU Hoops sells for $24.95 plus tax.
OBU Hoops recaps the entire history of OBU’s basketball programs. The book includes season-by-season summaries, team rosters, games scores, individual and team statistics, and individual and team records.
More than 100 photographs are featured in the hard-cover, 320-page “coffee table” edition.
