basketball that's any good.

Additionally, we've never been all that great at attending games. Most of our "sellouts" at Hearnes were back when we reported tickets sold, which is a metric we've reverted back to in the Sterk years.

Yeah, we have games like the fire code game, but generally as someone whose family had season tickets up until three years ago when I moved away, it's not something that appears to be directly from one cause.

Could be a structural thing, our major fanbase locations are located far enough away that even in good years it's not easy to make the trip and drive back in the middle of every week.

Win, and more fans will ultimately show up. But I don't think we're ever gonna have a consistently full arena.
