Last Monday night (November 22nd), K-State played Gonzaga in the CBE Classic at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. Tyler and I went, as well as my two brothers who were up from Wichita and my brother and sister-in-law who live in the KC metro.
Lucky night at the Sprint Center: K-State vs. Gonzaga
This was the view from our seats at the very top of the arena.
Before K-State played Gonzaga, Duke played Marquette. About ten minutes left in the Duke vs. Marquette game, a text-to-win contest happened. You had to text “Sprint” to a certain number to be entered in to a chance to win a seat upgrade. Our group, as well as many other people in the arena, took part in the contest. About five minutes after everyone sent the text, Tyler received a phone call informing him that he had won the seat upgrade! Tyler and I were able to move from the nose-bleed section to the second row off of the court. We also were on the jumbo-tron for a brief time since they announced that we were the winners of the upgraded tickets.
I texted the rest of my family to inform them that they were going to show us on the jumbo-tron. They were able to snap a few photos of us while we were on the jumbo-tron.
This was the better view after we won the seat upgrade.
Attending a K-State basketball game was a new experience for both of us. It made it even better that we won the seat upgrade.
