Kansas State men’s basketball will make a return to Wichita next season when the Big 12 Conference champions face current No. 1 Gonzaga in the Wichita Wildcat Classic on Saturday, Dec. 21 at INTRUST Bank Arena.

The game will rematch the two ranked teams which met earlier this season in the State Farm Battle in Seattle. Gonzaga won that game.

"We are excited to play a game of this significance in a great venue like the INTRUST Bank Arena in a great area like Wichita,” said head coach Bruce Weber in a press release. “I know that our fan base will pack the building with purple as we face one of the best teams in the country.”

Ticket prices for the game at INTRUST Bank Arena start at just $12 each, with an average price below $40, and include a $2 facility fee. Price points include $200 courtside and $150 VIP lower level seats which both include access to an all-inclusive premium lounge featuring a pre-game meal and open bar, as well as tickets available at $12, $20 and $35 each in the upper level and $75 and $35 each in the lower level.

Tickets will be available for purchase exclusively to K-State men’s basketball season ticket holders and Ahearn Fund members through season ticket renewals this summer, with ticket assignments occurring in order of athletic department priority points. General public tickets will go on sale on Friday, Sept. 13 at 10 a.m. through Select-A-Seat www.selectaseat.com or by phone at (855) 755.7328.
