Alabama Ranks No. 35 in 2013-2014 Basketball Attendance

The Alabama Crimson Tide ranked No. 35 nationally in Division I basketball attendance for the 2013–2014 season, according to a report released by the NCAA.

The Crimson Tide drew a total of 182,825 fans to 17 total home games last season, averaging 10,754 fans per game.

Although many media members, fans and students criticized head coach Anthony Grant’s ability to draw a crowd, Alabama finished fifth among SEC schools in average total attendance.

Kentucky finished second nationally averaging 22,964 fans in 18 home games. Fellow 2014 Final Four contestant Florida ranked surprisingly low in the report averaging 11,471 per game, good enough for No. 31 nationally.

The SEC ranked fourth among the 32 total Division I basketball conferences averaging an attendance of 10,353 per game.

The Big Ten took home the conference attendance crown, followed by the ACC and the Big 12.

Auburn and Texas A&M rounded out the bottom half of the SEC averaging 5,823 and 5,216 respectively. Auburn finished No. 91 out of the 100 total Division I schools listed in the report and Texas A&M No. 99.
