We are fortunate to have one of the best environments in college basketball in Bramlage Coliseum. This early sell-out of season tickets is a testament to the hard work of Coach Martin, his staff and our student-athletes as well as the loyalty and passion of K-State fans. We are proud K-State Basketball can continue to be accessible to all K-State fans with tickets still available and affordably priced for home games during the holiday break and the much anticipated match-up with UNLV December 21 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
Kansas State faces a must-win at Oklahoma State. The Wildcats currently reside among our "Next Four Out," in large part because of a No. 310 nonconference schedule. Despite wins over Missouri, at Texas and at Texas A&M, K-State is just 8-6 in the softer Big 12 North. A No. 72 RPI suggests the Wildcats will need at least a 10-6 Big 12 record along with further good work in next week's conference tournament.
Kansas St. (1-1 this week)—Coach Frank Martin was defending the Big 12 this week on the weekly conference call that there are several quality teams in the conference and wonders why they are not talked about as much as the Big East and the ACC. That may be true, but Kansas St. isn’t helping themselves as well as anyone else with having a bogus non-conference schedule and going 1-4 against Kansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri may be something that sticks out when the committee is trying to pick that last team from the Big 12.
