The Kansas State women’s basketball team will have a new opponent and new date for its preseason exhibition game.
K-State’s original exhibition, which was scheduled for Wednesday at Fort Hays State, was canceled because of coronavirus protocols. A K-State spokesperson told The Mercury that the protocols stemmed from a situation at Fort Hays State.
Fort Hays State also canceled its first two regular-season games, against Washburn and Emporia State, respectively, because of those same “COVID-19 protocols,” per a team announcement.
K-State now will face Newman University in an exhibition at 6 p.m. Nov. 27. The game will be held at Fugate Gymnasium in Wichita.
Visiting fans will not be allowed at the game because of limited capacity. The game will be broadcast on the MIAA Network.
Kansas State opens its regular season Nov. 29 when it hosts Southern at 1 p.m.
