NCAA Basketball Attendance Figures Released: Arizona 20th Overall, ASU 79th

The NCAA released its official attendance figures for the 2010-11 regular season on Tuesday, and Arizona impressed with its overall figures. ASU, on the other hand, has a long way to go.

The Wildcats averaged 13,680 fans per game (17 games, 232,561 total attendance) for their home contests. In a season where UA won the regular season Pac-10 title, the fact that the building was full of fans every game is not a huge surprise.

↵

The Sun Devils failed to draw even half as many fans per game, averaging only 6,772 tickets sold per contest (15 games, 101,576 total attendance). ASU had a terrible season by any standard, and the lack of wins wore the crowds down by the end of the season.

Both schools' attendance figures are down from last season, when UA averaged 13,800 per game and ASU reeled in roughly 7,500.
