SEC #3 Conference In Hoops Attendance Report

kentucky-fans-cats-painted-on-chestsThe NCAA has unveiled its annual look-see into college basketball attendance figures.  The fact that the SEC didn’t have a great year on the court didn’t have much impact at the turnstile.  The Southeastern Conference ranked #3 among conferences in terms of average attendance per game.

SEC schools averaged 10,571 fans per game in 2012-13.  Only the Big East (10,699) and the Big Ten (13,114) had better attendance.  Mike Slive’s league ranked third despite seeing an average drop in attendance per game of 942.

In terms of the league’s teams, once again Kentucky and Tennessee found themselves in the national top 10 for attendance.  In fact, an average of 23,099 UK fans packed Rupp Arena for games last season, which topped the entire country.

Below are the national ranks and average attendance figures for each SEC program.  You’ll notice that all 14 of the league’s schools ranked in the top 100 nationally:

 

1.  Kentucky 23,099

8.  Tennessee 16,635

20.  Arkansas 13,750

29.  Missouri 11,996

31.  Alabama 11,159

35.  Florida 10,677

36.  Vanderbilt 10,637

51.  South Carolina 8,603

66.  LSU 7,653

74.  Mississippi State 6,721

84.  Texas A&M 6,331

85.  Auburn 6,257

89.  Georgia 6,98

93.  Ole Miss 6,067

 

The SEC’s attendance figures will likely rise if the on-floor product around the league begins to improve.

Wouldn't it be great if the quality of the basketball in the SEC rose to the level of the fan's attendance. (And imagine how much better the attendance will be when the SEC commissioner's office forces their members to play more competitive non-conference basketball schedules.)

Suck it, Vandy, and your 40 lazy fans.

Go Gators!
