I was curious to see how much St. Mary's and BYU filled up league opponent seats. I compared, see table, BYU, SMC and GU to away games at the other league schools.

- GU draws 1340 more fans per road game than St. Mary's
- SMC draws 264 more fans to road games than BYU (that surprised me)

Seating Capacity for Each Arena:


Loyola Marymount (4156) (How did you not buy tickets for BYU?)
Pepperdine (3104) (Poor fan support... really only 926 for SMC?)
Portland (4852)
San Diego (5100)
San Francisco (5300)
Santa Clara (4500)

I'm not sure how the GU att Santa Clara game was so far above capacity...

I remember when BYU joined the league, they were going to fill these gyms with their large following. Does BYU not have as large of a following that people thought, or does football get the following? It seems like some of these schools, BYU would be a main ticket event.

I guess having 20,000 totally basketball illiterate fans booing every little call doesn't help you win many games. Who knew??

And that 200 illiterate fans on message boards whining about every little thing does help you?

I kid, GUBoards, I kid. :)

200? We peak in the 1000's at times!

the Lady Zags have the second largest overall attendance in the WCC when the men and the women's home games are counted all together. I think the lady zags' attendance this year was higher than last year.

What it does say is that SMC, no matter how much they choose to disagree, is not considered to be at the same level as the Zags. Until they can start drawing ON THE ROAD on a par with Gonzaga, they will always be second best, even if they win the head to head games.
