KANSAS CITY, Mo. — COVID-19 issues have forced Kansas State to postpone Wednesday’s scheduled game against Iowa State at Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kansas.

The Wildcats announced Monday that it was postponing the game “in response to K-State being unable to meet the required COVID-19 thresholds on Monday, as established by the conference,” in a statement.

It is unclear if there are any cases among KSU players and staff or if the roster issues are the result of contact tracing.

The game has not been rescheduled, but K-State announced it is working with the Big 12 and Cyclones on an alternate date.

The Wildcats (5-8, 1-4 Big 12) won 74-65 at Iowa State on Dec. 19 in the conference opener for both teams, but K-State has lost all four Big 12 games since.

Coach Bruce Weber’s squad is scheduled to play Saturday at No. 4 Texas in Austin.

“There has been no determination on any future K-State games at this time,” the Wildcats basketball program said.
