Texas Tech Basketball Has 12th Largest Increase in NCAA Attendance

Attendance for Texas Tech basketball improved significantly from 2015 to 2016.

Via the NCAA, Texas Tech was 12th in the nation in increase from last year to this year, up an average of 1,662 fans per game, which works out from 6,622 in 2015 to 8,284 in 2016.

That 8,284 on a national level puts Texas Tech at 56th overall in the nation, right below Notre Dame and right above Auburn. In terms of the Big 12, these are the ranks for the Big 12 with the national rank in parentheses and average attendance:

1. Kansas (9) 16,436
2. Iowa State (16) 14,270
3. Texas (26) 12,828
4. Kansas State (32) 11,902
5. West Virginia (39) 10,483
6. Oklahoma (43) 10,000
7. Texas Tech (56) 8,284
8. Baylor (82) 6,410
9. Oklahoma State (92) 5,857
10. TCU (99) 5,314

I think a realistic goal would be for Texas Tech to get closer to that 10,000 mark. Capacity at the United Supermarkets Arena is 15,098.
