Pair of national CBS games highlight K-State’s 2019-20 Big 12 basketball schedule

The Kansas State basketball team appears to be gaining respect at the national level.

Coming off an Elite Eight and a shared Big 12 championship in back-to-back seasons, the Wildcats will play a pair of conference basketball games on CBS next season.

Both games will be played on Saturday afternoons in February at Bramlage Coliseum. The network will broadcast K-State’s home game against rival Kansas nationally at 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 29, as well as its home game with Texas one week earlier.

The last Wildcats regular season game on CBS was in 1998 at Kansas, according to K-State records. They have never played a regular season game at Bramlage Coliseum on the network.

K-State loses Barry Brown, Kamau Stokes and Dean Wade this season, but they appear ready to reload behind senior wing Xavier Sneed, junior guard Cartier Diarra and a strong freshman class.

The Wildcats will play six conference games on ESPN+, the new streaming home for Big 12 sporting events, one game on the Longhorn Network and the other nine on ESPN or ESPN2. K-State plays a Big Monday game at home against Baylor on Feb. 3.

ESPN+ is a $4.99 per month subscription streaming service that can be viewed on a mobile phone or tablet, or through a device that plays streaming content on a television, like Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Apple TV or others.

K-State will open Big 12 action on the road against Oklahoma on Jan. 4 and conclude the conference slate at home against Iowa State on March 7.
