Men's Basketball Tickets
In the midst of one of the most successful periods in Kansas State University men's basketball history with a school-record five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances, the athletics department recently announced official ticket information for the 2014-15 season.

K-State will play 17 games in Bramlage Coliseum in 2014-15 with the season opener set for Nov. 14 against Southern Utah and includes tilts with UMKC, Nebraska-Omaha, Bradley, Savannah State, Texas Southern and Georgia. In addition to its eight nonconference games, the Wildcats will again face an 18-game, round-robin Big 12 Conference schedule with visits from seven NCAA Tournament teams, including Baylor, Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas, and NIT participant West Virginia.

The department also announced ticket information for its contest with former Big 12 foe Texas A&M in the Wildcat Classic at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on Dec. 20.

A variety of season ticket packages, including the new Wildcat 4-Pack, are available. The Wildcat 4-Pack includes four bench season tickets for $900, which is just $14 per game with a savings of almost $500. The Wildcat Victory Ticket Plan, available in limited quantities, is in its second year and includes all non-conference and all-midweek conference games (excluding Big Monday and the Kansas games) in general admission seating (sections 24-25) for only $129.

K-State continues to possess one of the top home atmospheres in the country as the Wildcats played in front of an average of more than 12,000 fans for four consecutive seasons at Bramlage Coliseum. The school has won more than 75 percent of its games in Bramlage Coliseum's 26-year history, including a 115-19 (.858) record over the past eight seasons at home and a 64-3 (.955) mark in non-conference play.

K-State is coming off yet another successful campaign in 2013-14, as the Wildcats advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the school-record fifth consecutive season and posted its eighth straight 20-win season. Under second-year head coach Bruce Weber, the squad posted a 15-2 record at home this past season, including a Bramlage Coliseum record 15-game winning streak from Nov. 13 to March 1. The team is 32-3 at home under Weber.

The Wildcats are expected to return nine lettermen, including five players with starting experience, in 2014-15 to go along with Division I transfers Justin Edwards and Brandon Bolden. The group is headlined by All-Big 12 Second Team selection Marcus Foster (15.5 ppg., 3.2 rpg.) and honorable mention pick Thomas Gipson (11.7 ppg., 6.5 rpg.). Overall, the team returns more than 70 percent of its scoring and 65 percent of its rebounding.
