MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State will return to the Sprint Center this upcoming season when the Wildcats play host to Pac-12 foe Washington State in the Wildcat Classic on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016.
K-State has played at least one game at the Sprint Center in 10 consecutive seasons, including seven matchups in the Wildcat Classic dating back to 2007. The Wildcats are 6-1 all-time in Wildcat Classic games.
“We always want to have a (non-conference) game in Kansas City at the Sprint Center,” said head coach Bruce Weber. “It’s not only a great opportunity to play in the same arena as the Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship, but it’s also a terrific, world-class venue for our players which I know our tremendous fan base with pack with purple once again.”
The two-game agreement calls for a return contest at the Spokane Arena in Spokane, Wash., on Dec. 20, 2017.
