Did you attend a UK basketball game in Rupp Arena this year? If so, pat yourself on the back, because you helped the Cats win another total home attendance title. 447,874 fans went to UK’s games at Rupp this past season, the most of any program in the country. Syracuse had the second most, at 429,378, followed by Louisville, with 406,338.
Kentucky led the nation in overall attendance as well, with 845,594 fans watching the Cats play at home, on the road, and in neutral sites. Because of course.
Syracuse actually edged Kentucky in average home attendance 23,854 to 23,572, but we’ll overlook that because the total attendance numbers are way more impressive, right?
