Even though many of the highlights had already been announced, K-State officially released their 2012-13 men’s basketball non-conference schedule on Tuesday. The Cats will play in the preseason NIT with regional games at Bramlage Coliseum on November 12th & 13th. If K-State survives the regional, they take the court for two games at Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 21st & 23rd. ESPN2 will televise the Cats on consecutive Saturdays in December, against Gonzaga in Seattle on December 15th, and Florida at the Sprint Center in KC on December 22nd. K-State will open the campaign with exhibition games on October 30th against Washburn and Emporia State on November 4th.
