    WBB: Attendance 5th in Nation

    There's a nice article about our attendance in the Rag. Too bad they had to talk about EIU as well. I think it says a lot about Cyclone fans, not just WBB fans!

    Re: WBB: Attendance 5th in Nation

    Good story. I didn't know that Coach Fennelly was the one who created the Lil'Clone Club:

    The Lil’ Clone Club had 52 members when Fennelly started it. The youths can be seen at games in the west bleachers, waiting to high-five the players going off the court.

    “When we started, (former athletic director) Gene Smith thought we were crazy,” Fennelly said. “I said to Gene, ‘Most 6-year-old kids aren’t driving to games, so we get their parents.’ That was probably the first thing we did when we came here. It just took off.

    “Some of those kids have been sitting in that front row since I got here.”

    Today, the club involves a pass for several sports and has nearly 2,500 members.

    We get Wieben and Ross back next year? You bet we can come close to the top in attendance if we're a top 25 team the entire year!

    #1...no...because Tennessee's arena hold more than Hilton. We could take #2 though.

    No not when Tennessee averages more now than Hiltons capacity.

    I love all the excuses at the bottom of the story how our numbers are inaccurate.

    Like they should be talking - EIU HAS to be doing the same thing because there's no way that CHA has had more than 5,000 fans in any game this year...

    I would venture to say that ISU Women's BBall attendance is better than Iowa Men's BBall attendance.
