That's what the box score lists for the Iowa-SD game tonight at CHA.
Can anyone verify that? Looked like a lot of empty seats way up there behind both baskets.
That number is always tickets sold, not actual bodies in the seats.
I'll check it out tomorrow, as BTN is televising the game at 11:30 AM EST, just FYI
on the BTN stream they tried to keep the camera angle no higher than row 12 all night, but even then there were still empty seats! towards the end (final 2-3 min), which obviously means many may have already left the blowout early, they finally showed an angle that gave a view of the top 20 rows...less than half the seats looked occupied to me.
plus, the crowd was not any where near what i'd call 'loud' at any point.
my estimate on the actual crowd size: ~7000
I attended the game at CHA, last nite.
A decent crowd, but I'd estimate more in the 7,000 range.
I'm sure a lot of Season ticket holders skipped that one, as they have to drive-in on Friday.
It will be JAM PACKED on Friday, nite. You can make book on that one.
And........the Women's Hawkeye team plays I.S.who on Thursday nite.
Come on in and cheer on Bluder's Bunch on Thursday!
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
It would be nice if both teams could pick up Ws
I was at an early game during the Lick era and the announced crowd was 9,500. It was more like 4,500. At least we moved down to the front row with no hassle.
General admission tix were only $10 with a football game ticket stub from the day before (probably the worst game I ever saw at Kinnick). Any guesses what football game might have been?
Some hints here: Lick era, early BB game, a FB-BB weekend.
Good call Todd.
Lost to West Michigan on Sat and beat Florida Gulf Coast in BB the next day.
