In the first NCAA attendance rankings of the year released on Jan. 30, the Toledo women’s basketball program says it ranks 24th in the country in attendance this season. The official figures have not yet been released on the NCAA website.
The Rockets, whose season-high in attendance is 4,917 on Dec. 1 against Iona, average 3,791 fans per game and have led the Mid-American Conference for the past 21 seasons in attendance. Only Bowling Green (1,589) and Central Michigan (1,302) are averaging over 1,000 fans per contest in the league.
Toledo finished the year ranked 37th nationally averaging 3,078 fans, the second-highest total in school history as the team made its run to capturing the WNIT crown, the first ever postseason championship for a MAC team. The WNIT Championship game hosted a school and conference-record 7,301 fans in a 76-68 victory over USC.
Toledo (13-7, 6-2 MAC) will look to add to its attendance numbers as the MAC West Division co-leaders host Akron (9-13, 3-5) on Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. in Savage Arena. The game will be televised live on BCSN.
