Kansas State’s basketball game against current No. 1 Gonzaga next season at Intrust Bank Arena will be Dec. 21, the schools announced Monday.
It’s a return trip to Kansas after Gonzaga’s victory in a neutral-court game in Seattle this season.
K-State season-ticket holders and Ahearn Fund members will have first opportunities to purchase tickets, with a public sale beginning at 10 a.m. Sept. 13 through selectaseat.com or by calling 855-755-7328. Tickets will range between $12 and $200, and K-State students can purchase $10 student tickets in the fall.
“We are excited to play a game of this significance in a great venue like the Intrust Bank Arena in a great area like Wichita with so many loyal K-State fans,” K-State coach Bruce Weber said in a statement. “I know that our fan base will pack the building with purple as we face one of the best teams in the country.”
The game will be the second at Intrust Bank Arena for K-State after a double-overtime loss to West Virginia in December 2011. The arena has also hosted three Wichita State games and three games of the 2011 NCAA women’s tournament.
