There will be a Hoops & Hops event as the Kansas State men's basketball team hosts Marquette on Saturday, Dec. 7th. There will be a Bootleg & Basketball ticket package that includes access to a pre-game bourbon and whiskey tasting event.

The event will have a throwback theme as K-State celebrates Repeal Day with tastings and cocktails in a secret location that will be revealed to ticket purchasers via text message the day of the event. This is being presented in partnership with Standard Beverage and will feature tastings and cocktails from Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, Jim Beam's small batch bourbons like Knob Creek and local Kansas distillery Boot Hill out of Dodge City.

Packages for the event include a special K-State branded snifter glass as well as food, spirit tastings and cocktails. Bootleg & Basketball tickets for those who already have game tickets are just $30. Event tickets that also include a bench ticket to the game are only $50. A limited number of both ticket options are available.

The deadline for fans to purchase tickets to Bootleg & Basketball is Wednesday, Dec. 4. Tickets can be purchased by visiting, calling 1-800-221-CATS, or by visiting the Bramlage Coliseum ticket office in person from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
