Texas Tech and Big 12 Basketball Attendance Figures

Where is Texas Tech’s attendance in basketball in relation to the rest of the Big 12?

The NCAA released their numbers on attendance (PDF) and Texas Tech basketball averaged 9,026 fans per game last year, which was good for 49th in the nation and # in the Big 12. Here are the entire Big 12 numbers as well as their national ranking.

Team National Rank Average Attendance Capacity % Full
Kansas 6 16,395 16,300 101%
Iowa State 16 14,275 14,356 99%
Kansas State 29 11,477 12,528 92%
West Virginia 31 11,374 14,000 81%
Texas 36 10,490 16,734 63%
Oklahoma 48 9,296 11,528 81%
Texas Tech 49 9,026 15,000 60%
Oklahoma State 56 8,436 13,611 62%
Baylor 79 6,811 10,284 66%
TCU 87 6,126 8,500 72%

Some of these figures are a bit deceiving because a team like Duke is 47th in the nation, averaging 9,314 per game, but a team like Duke cannot fit any more humans into Cameron Indoor Coliseum. I’ve included a percentage of capacity, i.e. how full each program is and Texas Tech obviously has a lot of room to grow.

One other interesting note is that Texas Tech was 26th in the nation in increase for average attendance from the previous year at an average of 742 fans per game, which is really good for Chris Beard and the marketing staff. Other programs on that list was Oklahoma State at #3 with an additional 2,579 fans and TCU with an increase of 812 fans and #22 n the nation.
