It’s the last week of the regular season for many major conferences, but many of the low and mid major conference tournaments have begun. Ultimately this led to a lot fewer low attendance games than normal, which brought the average crowd over 5,000 for the first time this season. Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 1 (Season total: 749) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: Northern Illinois vs Ohio – Hosted by NIU, a longtime fan of AMSTS, in the first round of the MAC tournament, only 1070 […]

NCAA Basketball 2018-19 Attendance, Week 18: Mid-Major Conference Tournament Time!


It’s almost tournament time, and a big part of who can advance in the tournament is based off of how well the team is playing as we head into March. With the help of MODERN TECHNOLOGY, we’ve blown up the AMSTS Computer Rankings to dissect exactly which teams have momentum going into the big dance, and which ones should be avoided. First things first, let’s look at how everything tends to center out over the course of the season. Largely because of conference play being a snake eating its own tail, when we aggregate each conference’s ratings over the course […]

Momentum and Consistency Heading into the NCAA Tournament



As the regular season draws to a close, many teams still find themselves in the thick of competing for a bye in a conference tournament. And plenty of other teams… don’t. Many of those teams that don’t have much to play for had some trouble drawing fans this week. Without further ado, let’s take a look: Number of games drawing fewer than 1,000 fans: 43 (Season total: 727) Here are the 3 lowest attended games of last week: Central Arkansas vs Stephen F. Austin – Plenty of Southland in the bottom three this week, with UCA and SFA fighting for the […]

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, […]

In case there is any doubt that losing detracts fans, let me introduce you to Coppin State. Ranked 347th in the AMSTS Computer Rankings, it’s hard to find a reason to get fans to show up.

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.

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.
