The Kansas State basketball program dates back to 1902 and has a long list of accolades to its credit. The Wildcats won the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) championship in 1917 and 1919, and have managed to win a total of 17 conference titles as of 2007. KState has appeared in the NCAA Tournament 26 times, playing for the National Championship in 1951 and losing to Kentucky. Who can forget the 1981 NCAA tourney win against #2 ranked Oregon State - a nail biter that finished 50-48? Or the 83-80 victory over Cincinnati, a team led by Oscar Robertson, in 1958. That game was dubbed “the game of the year” by Sports Illustrated. Kansas State’s main rival is powerhouse Kansas, whom they play in the “Sunflower Showdown”. Although the Jayhawks lead the series, look for KState to take another one back this season.
The Wildcats play their home games at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kansas. Bramlage Coliseum holds 12,500 spectators for basketball games. Student seats are located behind the benches.
