I didnt tune in to the video, and I don't trust ESPN, but ESPN lists just over 700, so very poor at best.

It was pretty empty last night. Crowd was 711, I think. The actual DAC Pack, which consists of about 15 students was lively and really into the game. There were another 50 students or so just hanging out. Main seating was empty.

Attendance numbers are really low this year, but there aren't necessarily fewer people at the games. I have a feeling that they used to pad the numbers more.

The last game against Delaware was as packed as I can ever remember it, but the actual attendance was only in the 1,700 range. If the capacity of the DAC is 2,500, there's NO WAY they could have fit another 800 people into that game.

People just need to learn more about this team. Regardless of their record they're playing a far more exciting brand of basketball. Spiker is pretty fun to watch on the sideline as well. The fans, in my opinion, just feel demoralized from the last couple of years.

i was really excited to see the sixers on espn 2 this morning...i mean really excited...because i realized it's been a long time since i had a team to really get behind and feel optimistic about. even some of my hatred for villanova got put aside last year. i just wanted to enjoy basketball again.
