Ice Family Basketball Center
Home of Men's and Women's Basketball
A New Era of K-State Basketball.
Thanks to the generosity of K-State donors and fans, a longtime dream was realized on October 5, 2012, when 600-plus former players, donors and friends gathered to dedicate the $18 million Ice Family Basketball Center.
The new permanent home for K-State men's and women's basketball, this facility serves as a major development resource for the teams and individual player growth as well as a recruiting tool that will complement K-State's unparalleled game-day atmosphere and world-class student-athlete experience.
The Ice Family Basketball Center, which was 100 percent privately funded with no tax dollars or university funds used, provides for the daily needs of Wildcat coaches and student-athletes and has amenities that are unsurpassed at a national level.
The completion of the facility is a milestone towards the vision of being a model intercollegiate athletics program, while it is also the cornerstone of providing a world-class student-athlete experience for the men's and women's basketball programs, both of which boast a proud heritage of success.
In recognition of their incredible philanthropic support of K-State Athletics, the facility was named the ‘Ice Family Basketball Center’ in September 2015 in honor of Carl & Mary Ice of Westlake, Texas. The Ice Family’s support has been instrumental in the facility upgrades, both on the university campus and for athletics, which have occurred K-State in recent years.
The building is equipped with two practice courts, coaches' offices, locker rooms for both teams and coaches, player lounges, a theatre-style team film room, a 2,500-square foot weight room, a sports medicine center with a state-of-the-art hydrotherapy facility and an atrium lobby with viewing deck.
The approximately 50,000-square-foot facility was designed by the world-renowned sports architecture firm Populous of Kansas City, Mo., and built by MW Builders, a national construction firm with offices in Manhattan and extensive experience in the state of Kansas, and blends a modern glass and steel structure with the tradition of K-State limestone on the exterior.
