Men’s Basketball to Hold Public Scrimmage Saturday

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Fans will get another opportunity to check out the Kansas State men’s basketball team, as the Wildcats will host a public scrimmage at Bramlage Coliseum following the Texas football game.

Fans should enter the arena through the Northwest and Northeast entrances with the scrimmage set to begin 15 minutes after the conclusion of the football game.  

The Wildcats are just a week out from the first of their two exhibition games, which is set for 7 p.m., on Friday, October 28 against Pittsburg State, and a mere three weeks from the official opener against Western Illinois in the second game of a men’s and women’s basketball at 8 p.m., on Friday, November 11. 

Armed with a veteran roster, K-State will look to build on its summer trip to Italy and Switzerland with the return of nine lettermen and six players returning with starting experience, highlighted by All-Big 12 Third Team selection Wesley Iwundu and All-Newcomer honorees Barry Brown and Dean Wade. Overall, the squad returns five of their top six scorers from last season, along with nearly 70 percent of their rebounding, assist, steal and minute totals. 

Men’s single-game tickets for the 18-game home schedule, excluding the Kansas game, went on sale to the public earlier this month with exhibition and non-conference game tickets starting at $10. Several season ticket packages as well as the Holiday, Pick 5 and Big Game Mini-Plans are also currently on sale.

Fans can purchase tickets in a variety of ways, including toll free at (800) 221.CATS (2287), online at www.kstatesports.com/tickets and in-person at the Athletics Ticket Office located in Bramlage Coliseum.
