That might explain Wednesday, but on Thursday we were coming off a win with a bump in optimism. The crowd didn't look much better, and whatever difference there was would be LaTech fans.

Seems to me like it should be an easy fix....8 men's teams and 8 women's teams qualify and you play the tournament in the same building. 14 games over 4 days in the same building seems feasible?

They should move it from Wed AM thru Sat night to Thurs AM thru Sun afternoon. Easier for travelers...

Conference tourney attendance will probably always suck. This is a terrible conference.

Yep, but its not a situation that's unique to C-USA. I don't think its really about things to do. Its more to do with quality and rivalry of teams playing. In addition, C-USA is so spread out attendance will always suck. Traveling to or from El Paso when your team has no shot is not gonna happen. There needs to be a strong top half of the conference with rivalries among them for multiple years.

it is definitely not unique to conference USA. All the reasons you listed are valid as to why attendance sucks at our conference tournament.

Welcome to Birmingham.

Concessions this year were subpar compared to the last two years...
