Kansas State will hold a public celebration in honor of the Wildcats' Big 12 co-championship at 6 p.m. Monday at Bramlage Coliseum.

Admission is free and seating will be open on the east and west sides of the arena. Doors to the northwest and northeast entrances open at 5:30 p.m. Because of construction traffic, fans are encouraged to use Gate 1 on College Avenue when parking on the west side of Bramlage Coliseum or park on the east side of the arena.

The celebration will include a celebratory net-cutting ceremony, performances by the K-State pep band, spirit groups and Willie Wildcat followed by remarks from university president Kirk Schulz, athletics director John Currie, head coach Bruce Weber and seniors Jordan Henriquez, Martavious Irving and Rodney McGruder.

The Wildcats finished the regular season 26-5 and 14-4 in the Big 12, tying for first place with Kansas. The shared regular-season conference title is K-State's first since the Wildcats won the Big Eight in 1977.

K-State also became the third Big 12 team to win Big 12 football and men's basketball titles in the same academic year.

Big 12 championship merchandise and concessions will be available for purchase at the event.
