    Decent town, unless you’re from cities that typically produce basketball talent.

    And have it not limited to KU. Big 12 has done better in that regard for tournament runs by multiple teams in past several years. OU and Tech reaching F4, TT to title game (and also E8 prior year). KSU did have the E8 run as 8 seed (Big 12 hasn't had a lot of teams advance multiple rounds above its seeding. Yes, UVa's loss helped, but did beat 5 UK).

    Exactly.

    Been to every arena/stadium and college town in the conference (aside from Baylor & WVU), and I wouldn’t even put Manhattan in the top 5 in the conference, let alone one of the best in the country.

    Ames looks like Paris compared to Manhattan.

    The Athlete did a B12 player poll on the subject. Hilton and Bramlage tied for second. The article quoted a WVU player who said he liked K-State best because of atmosphere, configuration, crowd noise, and lighting.

    You can see why the BIG 12 basketball conference has been the best in the land for many years and these recruiting classes will continue that trend.

    Did The Athlete check the WVU player's previous social media feeds for professionalism? Wouldn't want you unintentionally promoting unprofessional info associated with WVU.

    K-State's arena is good no doubt, but Hilton has been marked as one of the toughest places to play by many national media members. Jay Bilas, Seth Greenberg, Fran Fraschilla, and Jay Williams, just to name a few, have all talked about Hilton Coliseum being one of the best in the country.

    They are called titles, not championships. "Championships" typically refer to the conference tourney.

    Noob.
