The NCAA released attendance numbers for the 2013 men's basketball season on Wednesday and Washington State reflected evenly among the national Division-I average but well-below average in comparison to the rest of the Pac-12 Conference last season.
The Cougars, who finished 2012-13 with a record of 13-19 (4-15, Pac-12), had a total season attendance of 83,311 at home and averaged 4,901 average in 17 home games. Those numbers are an increase from 2011-12, which saw the team average 4,749 per game with a total attendance of 75,991 in 16 games.
Washington State landed at No. 9 in the Pac-12 conference last season, which has an overall average of 7,631 per game attendance, and outside the top-100 for the second consecutive year. The conference average is trending upwards after averaging 7,213 in 2012.
After 2005-06, where the Cougars averaged under 4,000 in per home game attendance, their average attendance numbers fluctuated around the 7,000 mark in 2006-07 (7,177), 2007-08 (8,231), 2008-09 (8,018), 2009-10 (7,323) and 2010-11 (7,143), before the significant decrease over the last two seasons.
The national per game average attendance for Division-I men's basketball home games was 4,921 last season after tallying totals from 345 Division-I programs.
The entire Pac-12 Conference numbers are as follows:1. Arizona (14,157), 2. Colorado (10,392), 3. UCLA (9,549), 4. California (8,297), 5. Utah (8,611), 6. Washington (7,937), 7. Oregon (7,602), 8.
