Remaining FSN games to be on ESPN Full Court

MANHATTAN, Kan. The Kansas State athletics department announced today that the three remaining men’s basketball games on FSN Midwest will now be available on the ESPN Full Court package.


The games include Saturday’s sold-out contest with Iowa State at Bramlage Coliseum, the home contest with Nebraska on Wednesday, Feb. 6 and its road contest with nationally-ranked Baylor at the Ferrell Center in Waco, Texas on Saturday, Feb. 23.


This allows more fans to view these key Big 12 contests, as Big 12 guidelines restrict FSN’s viewing area to cable and satellite homes in the state of Kansas and throughout the Kansas City area.


With the addition of these three games on the ESPN Full Court package, fans will be able to see the remaining 13 regular-season contests as well as those at the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship throughout the country on at least one of the ESPN family of networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPN Full Court).  The Wildcats still have five games remaining on either ESPN or ESPN2.
