K-Staters Can Show Pride vs. Missouri
MANHATTAN, Kan. - The K-State men's basketball game versus Missouri on Saturday, Feb. 27 has been designated as the fourth annual K-State Proud game, university officials announced.
K-State Proud is the first-ever all-university student campaign at K-State designed to allow students to take part in philanthropic efforts that will help fellow students. Guided by the leadership of Student Foundation, the campaign gives students the opportunity to show their pride through philanthropy. Campaigns throughout the last three years have raised more than $250,000, creating K-State Proud Student Opportunity Awards.
The fourth annual campaign runs Feb. 22-26 and culminates with the Missouri game on Feb. 27.
There are a number of ways to contribute to the campaign. The most prominent way is by making a donation to receive the popular K-State Proud T-shirt by donating at the booth located in the K-State Student Union beginning Monday, or online at www.k-stateproud.org.
The shirts can also be purchased at any GTM location with $10 of every shirt benefitting the campaign. You can also make donations without purchasing the T-shirt at www.k-stateproud.org.

In addition, the week of Feb. 22-27 has also been designated as "I Love College Hoops... Beat Cancer" Week. All fans attending the Missouri game are encouraged to wear a headband to show their support for the fight against cancer and Coaches vs. Cancer. The first 100 students will receive the official "I Love College Hoops" headband courtesy of the Collegiate Licensing Company and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.
The Wildcats begin a two-game road trip on Saturday, as the squad travels to Norman, Okla., to face the Sooners (13-12, 4-7 Big 12) at the Lloyd Noble Center at 5 p.m. CT.
