Intrust Bank Arena realizing hoop dreams

Fresh off its impressive performance hosting the NCAA women’s tournament, Intrust Bank Arena has booked a Dec. 8 game between the men of Kansas State University and West Virginia University, pitting current KSU coach Frank Martin against predecessor Bob Huggins. What’s more, the University of Kansas and University of Southern California men are working on plans to play a December game at Wichita’s year-old downtown arena. These are just the kind of contests, with big-name teams and significant regional drawing power, that arena proponents dreamed of all along.
