The Kansas State Athletic Department announced Tuesday that all men’s and women’s basketball games in November would be played without fans in attendance.
The decision affects men’s games against Drake on Nov. 25, Colorado on Nov. 27, and Kansas City (fka UMKC) on Nov. 30 and a women’s game against Southern on Nov. 29.
The university previously announced it would cancel commencement ceremonies that were scheduled to take place in Bramlage Coliseum Friday through Sunday.
“In concert with the university’s decision to cancel graduation ceremonies, this was a prudent decision for us at this time,” A.D. Gene Taylor said in the announcement.
K-State’s remaining home football game Dec. 5 against Texas is currently unaffected, and the athletic department continues to plan on allowing 25 percent fan capacity with reserved seating for the remainder of the season.
As of Monday morning, Riley County reported 551 active cases of COVID-19, including 180 new cases. The county recorded its 14th death on Friday.
