The Kansas State basketball team will make two appearances on ESPN’s nationally televised “Big Monday” lineup of games next season.
The first of the two prime-time games will come on February 11, when the Wildcats travel to Allen Fieldhouse to take on Kansas. It will be the third-straight year for the in-state rivals colliding on Big Monday. K-State hosted the Jayhawks the past two years.
A week later, K-State will host West Virginia at 8 p.m. The game will mark Bob Huggins’ return to Bramlage Coliseum. He coached against the Wildcats last season, but that game was played at Intrust Bank Arena in Wichita.
