The Kansas State Wildcats men's basketball team represents Kansas State University in college basketball competition. The program is classified in the NCAA Division I, and is a member of the Big 12 Conference. The current head coach is Bruce Weber.

The program began competition in 1902, and has a long history of success. The first two major-conference titles captured by the school were won in the sport, in 1917 and 1919 (in the Missouri Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Association). Kansas State has gone on to capture 18 regular season conference crowns in the sport, and the program has winning records against all other current and former Big 12 teams except Kansas and Oklahoma.

Street & Smith ranked K-State 22nd in its 2005 list of the greatest college basketball programs of all time,[4] while Jeff Sagarin listed the program 27th in his all-time rankings in the ESPN College Basketball Encyclopedia.[5] Following the 2015-2016 season, the Wildcats had a record of 1612-1121.

History[edit]

Through the years Kansas State University has appeared in 28 NCAA basketball tournaments, most recently in 2014. The team's all-time record in the NCAA tournament is 33–32 (.508). Kansas State's best finish at the tournament came in 1951, when it lost to Kentucky in the national championship game. The school has reached the Final Four 4 times, the Elite Eight 12 times, and the Sweet Sixteen 16 times. Included among K-State's tournament wins are some all-time classics, including an 83–80 win over Oscar Robertson's Cincinnati team in 1958, which Sports Illustrated called "the most exciting game of the 1958 season," and a 50–48 win over second-ranked Oregon State in 1981, which USA Today listed as one of the greatest games in NCAA tournament history.[6][7]

The team also had some notably successful seasons before the creation of the NIT (1938) and the NCAA tournament (1939), including conference titles in 1917 and 1919 under coach Zora G. Clevenger. The Helms Athletic Foundation named Frank Reynolds the program's first All-American player in 1917, and the Premo-Porretta Power Poll retroactively ranked Kansas State #12 in 1910, #18 in 1916, #8 in 1917 and #7 in 1919.[5]

The best season in the school's history may have been 1959, when the team finished the season ranked #1 in the final Associated Press Poll and Coaches Poll. K-State has finished ranked in the Top 10 of one of the two polls on ten occasions (most recently in 2010), and in the final top 25 polls nineteen total times. The team has also posted a winning record at home every year since 1946.

After a lengthy period with little success during the 1990s and 2000s, the team has returned to prominence. Following a twelve-year absence, the team returned to the NCAA tournament after the 2007–08 season, under first-year head coach Frank Martin. Following that season, Kansas State freshman Michael Beasley was named an All-American and Big 12 Conference Player of the Year. In the 2009–10 season, the team spent much of the year ranked in the Top 10 of the AP Poll and finished second in the Big 12 with an 11–5 record. The team received a #2 seed in the 2010 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, and beat North Texas and BYU to advance to the Sweet Sixteen, where the Wildcats faced Xavier. The game was a double-overtime thriller won by Kansas State 101–96, which CBSSports.com called "one of the best games in the history of the Sweet 16."[8] Kansas State lost in the next round to Butler, the eventual national runner-up.

On March 31, 2012, Bruce Weber was announced as head coach after Frank Martin left for South Carolina. During the 2012–2013 season, Weber's first in Manhattan, Kansas State won its first regular season conference title since 1977 and advanced to the NCAA tournament.[9] K-State returned to the NCAA tournament again in Weber's second season, and has now appeared in the NCAA tournament for five consecutive years, through the 2013–2014 season – the ninth-longest active streak in the nation.

Kansas State has a total of 36 All-Americans, 18 regular-season conference championships and nine conference tournament championships.[10]

Top 25 rankings[edit]

Kansas State University has finished in the final rankings of the AP Poll or Coaches Poll on nineteen occasions throughout its history, including one season at #1 in the final polls (pre-NCAA Tournament). The AP Poll first appeared in 1948, and has been published continuously since 1950–51. The Coaches Poll began in the 1950–51 season. Currently, the final AP Poll is released before the tournament and the final Coaches Poll is released after the tournament.

Rivalries[edit]

Kansas: Sunflower Showdown[edit]

Main article: Sunflower Showdown

Kansas State's main rivalry is with the Kansas Jayhawks. The rivalry peaked in the 1950s when both teams were annually national title contenders. The 1987–88 season also proved to be momentous in the rivalry. In the first matchup of the season, on January 30, 1988, Mitch Richmond scored 35 points to lead Kansas State to a 72–61 win to halt KU's then-record 55-game home winning streak. On February 18, KU turned the tables, prevailing 64–63 at Ahearn Field House in Manhattan to deny K-State a victory over KU in the old field house's last year. In what was supposed to be the rubber game, in the 1988 Big Eight Conference Men's Basketball Tournament, Kansas State won a decisive victory by a 69–54 score. However, the biggest was yet to come. Both teams qualified for the NCAA tournament, and after three wins each in the tournament they faced each other on March 27 in Pontiac, Michigan, for the right to advance to the Final Four. Led by Danny Manning's 20 points, KU turned a tight game into a runaway and prevailed 71–58. Kansas would go on to win the national championship.

The rivalry slipped in significance after the 1988 season, and from 1994 to 2005 KU won 31 straight games against K-State, the longest streak for either school in the series. KU also posted a 24-game win streak against the Wildcats in Manhattan, which ended on January 30, 2008, when #22 Kansas State upset #2 Kansas 84–75.

Jeff Sagarin's rankings of the nation's top programs by decade in the ESPN College Basketball Encyclopedia nicely track the history of the rivalry.[5] In the 1950s, when the rivalry was at its peak, Kansas State finished the decade ranked as the #3 program in the nation and KU was ranked as #4.[5] In the 1960s KU was ranked #9 for the decade and KSU was ranked #11. In the 1970s, the programs were again nearly even, with Kansas State ranked at #24 and KU at #25. In the 1980s some separation appeared, as KU finished the decade ranked at #19 and Kansas State at #31. The big difference appeared in the 1990s and 2000s when KU was ranked at #4 and #2 for the decades, while Kansas State does not appear anywhere in the top 40.[5]

The rivalry has become more competitive again in recent years, with both teams ranked in the AP Top 25 for many of their match-ups.[11]

Missouri[edit]

As of the 2014–15 season, Missouri is Kansas State's second most-played rival, with 235 games dating back to 1907. Kansas State leads the series 119–116. The series was last played in the 2011–12 season, before Missouri moved to the Southeastern Conference.[12][13] For nearly a century beforehand, the two schools shared conferences, beginning in the 1913–14 season in the Missouri Valley Conference, then in the Big Eight Conference and its predecessors from 1928 to 1996, and finally the Big 12 Conference from 1996 to 2012.

Wichita State[edit]

Kansas State had an ongoing in-state, out-of-conference rivalry with Wichita State, dating back to 1932 and last played in 2003. Kansas State leads the series 20–11. The series had six games from 1932 to 1964, then six games on a home-and-home rotation from the 1969–70 to 1971–72 seasons, and most recently 19 home-and-home games every season from 1985–86 to 2003–04.[14]

When Wichita State became a Top 25 regular in the early 2010s, there came interest in reviving the series.[15] In February 2013, Kansas state senator Michael O'Donnell introduced a bill requiring Kansas and Kansas State to schedule Wichita State.[16]
