In his pregame news conference here at the Pinstripe Bowl, Kansas State athletic director John Currie said he has been in discussions with Syracuse administrators about playing a future basketball series with the Orange.
He would not say how far along those discussions are, but said ideally they would agree to a two-game series with games being played on neutral courts at Madison Square Garden and the Sprint Center.
New York is a big recruiting area for K-State basketball coach Frank Martin, and four current Wildcats are from the Big Apple and surrounding areas. A future series with Syracuse would give Martin the chance to take many of them home for a game.
