MANHATTAN, Kan. – With a major winter storm forecast across the state tonight and tomorrow, K-State Athletics officials reiterated that tonight’s 6 p.m. men’s basketball game against Texas Tech will be played as scheduled and announced special offers to make it more convenient for fans in the Manhattan area and K-State students to attend the nationally-televised game. 
Athletics Director John Currie said that general admission parking at Bramlage Coliseum will be free of charge to accommodate those fans traveling to the game and that all K-State students will receive free admission with a valid student ID. The ICAT sections will still be held for ICAT pass holders until 5:30 p.m.

“We know that the weather may affect some of our out-of-town fans’ ability to travel to Manhattan tonight and want to make it as convenient as possible for our local community and K-State students to join us in Bramlage for tonight’s important Big 12 game,” Currie said. “Our fans have been instrumental to our team’s success this season, and tonight provides another special opportunity to be a part of the action and support the first-place Wildcats.”
Tickets are available for tonight’s contest at $30 or $40 for reserved chairback and Cat cushion seats. Fans can order online at k-statesports.com, by phone at 1-800-221-CATS or in person at the Bramlage Coliseum ticket office.

After Saturday’s 81-69 win at Texas, K-State kept pace in the Big 12 standings, as the Wildcats remain in a tie for first place with an 11-3 league record with just two more home games remaining.
Monday will also cap off K-State Proud festivities, as fans are encouraged to donate to the student-led fundraising campaign to benefit K-State students.  Every person who donates to the cause will receive a specially-designed gray K-State Proud T-shirt to wear to the game.
