K-State has high aspirations for the 2014-15 season, as nine lettermen, including five players with starting experience, return from a squad which advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the school-record fifth consecutive season with its eighth straight 20-win season. The group is headlined by Preseason All-Big 12 selection Marcus Foster (15.5 ppg., 3.2 rpg.) and senior Thomas Gipson (11.7 ppg., 6.5 rpg.). Overall, the team returns more than 70 percent of its scoring and 65 percent of its rebounding, including its leading scorer (Foster) and rebounder (Gipson).
In addition to these returners, the Wildcats will also have Division I transfers Justin Edwards and Brandon Bolden, who sat out the 2013-14 season, along with four newcomers, including community college transfer and 2012-13 Atlantic Sun Freshman of the Year Stephen Hurt and highly-regarded freshmen Tre Harris and Malek Harris.
Fans have made Bramlage Coliseum one of the top home environments in the country, as the school has ranked among the nation's Top 35 attendance seven times in the last eight seasons, including 29th in 2013-14 with an average of 12,125 fans per contest. K-State has won more than 75 percent of its games in the arena's 26-year history, including a 115-19 (.858) record over the past eight seasons at home and a 64-3 (.955) mark in non-conference play.
