LOS ANGELES - The annual LMU Homecoming Weekend for 2017 is shaping up to be one for the record books and preparations are underway for the ultimate rivalry weekend. This year’s homecoming will take place Feb. 16-18, 2017 and will feature the Class of 2017 of the LMU Athletics’ Hall of Fame and a pair of not-to-be-missed showdowns in West Coast Conference action.

Here are the highlights to this year’s homecoming:

Feb. 16, 2017: LMU women’s basketball vs. Saint Mary’s - 12 pm
This special WCC match-up will be held at 12 noon and will be the second annual Field Trip Day. Local elementary school kids, including LMU Family of School Partners, will spend the afternoon with the Lions as they take on the Gaels. In addition, it will be Homecoming’s Faculty Appreciate Day. Come out and join the kids and Lions for this special lunchtime showdown.

Feb. 17, 2017: LMU Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies - 7 pm
The Hall of Fame banquet will take place from 7 pm to 9:30 p.m. on Friday, February 17 in Roski Hall within University Hall. The 2017 Induction Class includes athletes from the track and the pitch, those who played above the net and scored buckets, as well as a pair of benefactors who helped shape LMU athletics into what it is today. This year’s class includes Chad and Ginni Dreier (Benefactor), Tara Erdmann (Cross Country/Track), Michael Erush (Men’s Soccer), Heather Hughes (Volleyball), Terrell Lowery (Baseball/Men’s Basketball), and Adrianne Slaughter (Women’s Basketball).

Feb. 18, 2017: LMU men’s basketball vs. Pepperdine - Tailgate: 1 pm; Tip-off: 3 pm
The 2017 Homecoming Game will be on Saturday, Feb. 18 at 3 pm. The PCH Cup Rivalry showdown went to double overtime last year and this year’s first meeting was decided at the buzzer. Start the day right with the annual Homecoming Tailgate Party, which begins at 1 pm.

Fans can be a part of this year’s homecoming starting with the T-Shirt Design Contest. The annual homecoming T-Shirt has become a traditional part of homecoming week and this year we are looking for you, the fan, to design this year’s shirt.

We are looking for Lions to put their creative skills to the test and help us design the Homecoming T-Shirt. Deadline for submissions is Friday, Jan. 20 be 5 pm. Submit entries to Judges will review all submissions and select the best design, which will be produced and handout during the homecoming game. Winner will earn a grand prize of two NBA basketball tickets to see the Los Angeles Clippers take on the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers.

This year’s theme for homecoming is Crush the Waves. Part of Homecoming Week will include:

• A No Orange mandate, as Lions are asked to not wear orange all week.
• A social media contest of why you are proud to be a Lion and #LIONSTRONG. Best posts can win official LMU merchandise, including basketball jersey’s.
• A Spirit Trade-in: trade in another school’s shirt and get an LMU shirt. Bring shirts to the LMU Ticket Office during homecoming week to get rid of that other school.
• Spot Iggy: If you see Iggy, a cheerleader or dancer on campus all week (they will be wearing the homecoming shirt), post a picture with them and tag @LMULIONS to receive the 2017 homecoming t-shirt early.
• The second annual office decorating contest will once again take place on on Friday, February 17.
