The Kansas State Wildcats are set to tip off the 2012-2013 college basketball season. Gold Coast Tickets does not want you to miss out on the action as the Wildcats look to make it on top of the Big 12 and shock the nation in the NCAA Tournament! The Wildcats have been a force to be reckoned with these past couple of years as they unanimously have made the NCAA Tournament for three straight seasons.
In the 2009-2010 season former head coach Frank Martin lead the Wildcats to one their best seasons ever under the leadership of Jacob Pullen. The Wildcats made a run in the tourney as a #2 seed but were knocked out by eventual National Champion runner-up Butler Bulldogs. In 2011 the Wildcats entered the tourney as a #5 seed but had an early second round exit in a nail-biter game with the Wisconsin Badgers. Last year the Wildcats made the tourney once again as a #8 seed. The Wildcats were confident that they could do some damage in the tournament, but fell short of expectations when they were knocked off in the second round by #1 seeded Syracuse Orange.
Last season would be Frank Martin’s last season as Wildcat head coach as he will be replaced by former University of Illinois Fighting Illini head coach Bruce Weber. Weber is sure to bring a high-powered offense and tenacious defense to the table in Manhattan, Kansas. The Wildcats have expectations this year as they return their two best players in Rodney McGruder and Angel Rodriguez. In addition, they will pick up some good recruits in Point Guard Michael Orris and Power Forward Darrell Johnson.
The Wildcats play their home games at the beautiful Bramlage Coliseum, where they had one of their biggest wins every in February of 2011 when they knocked off #1 ranked Sunflower State rival the Kansas Jayhawks.
