WICHITA, Kan. — For the first time in more than 50 years, Wichita State will play a men's basketball game in downtown Wichita.
Wichita State's Athletic Director announced Wednesday the Shockers will play Tulsa at INTRUST Bank Arena.
“This is a partnership opportunity for WSU, Sedgwick County and the City of Wichita for the Shockers to play basketball in a great venue," said AD Eric Sexton in a news release. "INTRUST Bank Arena must also host a Division I basketball game this year as part of these same partners bringing the NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament event to Wichita in the spring, so the Tulsa game made sense for a lot of reasons."
This WSU home game will be played on December 21st. It is included in the Wichita State men’s basketball season ticket package for 2010-11.
The Wichita State news release says, that because the venue is INTRUST Bank Arena, the tickets for this game will be mailed at a later date than the remainder of the home game package. The Wichita State Athletic Department will utilize priority points to assign seating locations for 2010-11 season ticket holders through the SASO priority points system.
