Pat yourselves on the back, Big Blue Nation. You led all of college basketball in home attendance for the 18th time in 21 seasons.
Kentucky men’s basketball averaged 23,361 fans per game in Rupp Arena in 2015-16, totaling 397,148 fans over the course of 17 games to watch the Cats. UK was one of only seven schools with at least 300,000 fans at its home games this season.
Going all the way back to Rupp Arena’s first season in 1976-77, Kentucky has ranked either first or second in average attendance every single year.
Let’s celebrate with a new video board next year!
