The NCAA released its annual Division I men’s basketball attendance leaders and the Big 12 had a strong presence among the listing.  Ten of the Big 12 schools ranked among the top 50, a league record.  Overall, eleven of the 12 squads placed in the top 80, with two (Kansas, Texas) in the top 20.

In addition to the 11 nationally-ranked schools, three Big 12 squads were among the top 10 in highest average attendance increase.  Texas Tech led the country with an increase of 2,330 fans per game, while Missouri checked in at No. 4 (+1,745) followed by Oklahoma (+1,230) at No. 10.

The Big 12 has drawn more than 2.2 million fans each of the last three seasons after having never surpassed the two-million plateau in the league’s first 10 campaigns.
