Kansas State on Saturday will unveil “Tex Winter Drive,” a road on campus that honors the former K-State basketball coach and Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee.

The drive runs from Kimball Avenue to Bramlage Coliseum and the basketball training facility.

A 9 a.m. ceremony Saturday will include words from former K-State player Ernie Barrett and athletic director John Currie. K-State plays host to Oklahoma State at 11.

Winter, who turns 93 in February, was 261-118 from 1954-68. He’s second in school wins behind Jack Hartman and won eight conference championships.
