College Basketball


With the record cold temperatures last week, it’s no surprise that the number of games with fewer than 1000 fans was up nearly 50% week-over-week. As we get closer to the end of the season, head to head matchups become less relevant at times, leading to even fewer fans in attendance. This is the first week of that decline Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 27 (Season total: 684) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: Loyola-Maryland vs Navy – Not to be confused with the Ramblers of Chicago, […]

MLK Weekend and every team in the nation (except 53) decided to be a part of a game on Saturday, the busiest NCAA Basketball day of the season with 150 games on the docket. Despite that, only a handful on Monday during the day. But let’s look at last week, where we crossed the 500 mark of count of games with fewer than 1,000 in attendance.

School is back in session, and conference play has begun. Teams no longer have an excuse, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t see low attendance for a while. Our bottom three attended games this week all fell below 350 fans, despite all three of them being extremely competitive. Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 59 (Season total: 468) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: New Hampshire vs UMass-Lowell – Only 340 in the crowd to see the Wildcats host the Riverhawks in New Hampshire, but they were […]

NCAA Basketball 2018-19 Attendance, Week 10: Close Games, No Crowds


The last two weeks have had schools out of session and the Christmas holiday, meaning that many games took place in neutral sites. Because of that, we’ve combined weeks seven and eight into one post. But don’t worry, we have a cameo appearance by a major trophy. Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 55 (Season total: 409) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: Stetson vs Edward Waters – Stetson makes its second appearance in the bottom three with only 290 on hand to watch them take on the […]

With the neutral sites behind us, attendance was up almost 40% as teams returned to campus. Traditionally these few weeks signify a bit of a dead cat bounce in NCAA Basketball Attendance before the plummet after final exams in mid-December.  That said, with our lowest attended game still over 300 fans, this week was nothing short of remarkable.   Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 47 (Season total: 259) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week Chicago State vs Trinity (IL) – Our first game of the bottom three involves […]

NCAA Basketball 2018-19 Attendance, Week 4: Back on Campus


Thanksgiving week was upon us, and it was the second week of neutral site tournaments.  After a mild first week, the Thanksgiving week neutral site games blew everything out of the water, including the second lowest attended NCAA Basketball game we’ve ever had since we started tracking attendance in 2014, and the lowest attended game featuring two Division I teams.  Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 72 (Season total: 163) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week Jacksonville State vs North Florida – Only 121 showed up to see […]
