The Sprint Center has been good to Kansas State this season.
K-State moved into the top 25 for the first time after beating Florida in Kansas City. Then it thumped Texas and Oklahoma State to advance to tonight’s championship game of the Big 12 Tournament. Now it is hoping to start the NCAA Tournament in Kansas City, too.
If all goes according to plan, the Wildcats will also be back at the Sprint Center next season for a nonconference game.
They are still working on a date and an opponent, but K-State athletic director John Currie said Saturday morning that the Wildcats intend on continuing their annual nonconference trip to Sprint Center for a neutral-court game next season. K-State has played an early game at Sprint Center for six straight seasons.
