Kansas State’s 2013 conference basketball schedule released

9 Aug

As much as it pains me to deviate from football talk at this time of year, the Big 12 released the conference basketball schedule for this upcoming season, so I couldn’t help extracting Kansas State’s 2013 conference schedule from the overall Big 12 list.

In keeping with the double round robin format, the Wildcats will play 18 conference games – one home and one on the road against each of their nine Big 12 opponents.

Kansas State will be featured in the 8:00 p.m. “Big Monday” slot on ESPN in back-to-back weeks, when it takes on Kansas in Lawrence on Feb. 11 and when it hosts West Virginia on Feb. 18.

The Wildcats begin and end their conference season with Oklahoma State, hosting the Cowboys in their Big 12 season opener on Jan. 5 and finishing up conference play at Stillwater on March 9.

After the Big 12 home opener, Kansas State takes on the opponents with whom it is least familiar as it travels to conference newcomers West Virginia and TCU for its second and third Big 12 games of the season.

As far as home games fans are most likely to mark on their calendars, the Wildcats host Kansas on Jan. 22, Texas on Jan. 30, Baylor on Feb. 16 and, of course, West Virginia in the Big Monday matchup on Feb. 18.

Below is the full Big 12 schedule for Kansas State in 2013.
