    Our Attendance

    Just want to share my experience:
    Last night I and my family attended a small event for Minnesota Lynx WNBA team. The head coach, Cheryl Reeve was there too and she took time to introduce herself personally to everyone.
    She started with general conversation and then asked me how I became a WBB fan and I mentioned I went to Iowa State and that's when I started to be a fan. Her response was "Wow, Iowa State. They drew tons of people for their games there" and I replied 'yes, we've been having good teams, a great coach and great student athletes".
    I was really happy to hear that our attendance/fans support is known to the next level !

    PS: we also talked about the general state of college WBB as well as the draft. I just realized after Coach Reeve mentioned that Britney Grinner is eligible for the draft as she's reached the age of eligibility. I just hope she decides to declare but with her major in general studies with emphasis of Outdoor Recreation, she might be persuaded to stay

    Pretty neat to hear how we're known. Much better than for some other things at different schools!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Are you really asking or being facitious? If its the former...that's wild Bill. Perhaps the biggest WBB fan ever. Hasn't attended games for a couple of years now after a little disagreement occurred..

    When the team went to Hawaii in 2008, he went and was running his mouth behind the ISU bench complaining about the officiating. The ISU radio people were right there and everything was heard on the radio. Also, there weren't many people in the arena and he was heard by everyone there. He was instructed by the staff after the game to be quiet.

    He retired from ISU in the spring of 2009 and stated he couldn't afford the cost of season tickets since he wouldn't be working anymore.
