Kansas State will begin a series of basketball games against Tulsa on Dec. 9 next season at Wichita’s Intrust Bank Arena.
The Wildcats and Golden Hurricane agreed to the series months ago. K-State formally announced dates for the games on Wednesday.
Tickets for the neutral-court game at Intrust will go on sale Sept. 5 and can be purchased through the K-State athletics ticket office. Tickets are priced at $50 for lower-level sideline seating, $25 for lower-level corner seating and $15 for lower-level end seating.
K-State and Tulsa will play each other three times over the next three seasons. After the game at Intrust, K-State will head to Tulsa for a road game on Dec. 8, 2018 and then host Tulsa at Bramlage Coliseum in 2019. The date for that game hasn’t been decided.
Never miss a local story.
“We are excited to once again play in front of our passionate fan base in Wichita,” K-State coach Bruce Weber said in a statement. “We have had tremendous crowds for each of our games at Intrust Bank Arena and, with a quality foe like Tulsa, I anticipate another terrific environment.”
This will be K-State’s fourth game at Intrust Bank Arena. The Wildcats have previously played West Virginia, Gonzaga and Colorado State in Wichita, going 2-1.
Tulsa went 15-17 last season. K-State finished 21-14.
K-State’s nonconference schedule for the 2017-18 season is nearly complete. Other notable games next season will include a trip to Vanderbilt, a home game against Georgia in the Big 12/SEC Challenge, a neutral-court game against Washington State in Spokane and the Las Vegas Invitational.
