Memorial Coliseum has to be a tough place to play. The UK Hoops program came in at #7 in average attendance for the 2015 season, with an average of 6,379 fans coming out per game this season. The Cats received their highest attendance ranking since the 1983 season and their 12th straight appearance in the top 25 national attendance average, including two back-to-back seasons in the top ten.

The SEC led the nation in women’s basketball attendance for the first time since 1984, the second time in history a league has gotten over one million fans in the door. It’s the fourth best record by any conference with only the BIG 12 having more in a single season. Nine SEC schools placed in the top 50 for average attendance with four in the top twenty five. South Carolina ranked number one in the nation with an average of 12,293 fans, snapping Tennessee’s eleven straight seasons in the top spot. The Vols came in second at 10,375.
