ESPN, Versus Earn Season-High College Hoops Viewer Numbers
Published March 15, 2011
Versus also pulled in a season high viewership on Saturday night with its coverage of the Mountain West final, though its viewer numbers were a fraction of ESPN's. Saturday night's Mountain West final between top 10 teams San Diego State and BYU pulled 656,000 viewers, a record high for college basketball on Versus. That figure is also up 470.4% from last year's San Diego State-UNLV final, which averaged 115,000 viewers on the net. For the entire season, Versus has averaged 211,000 viewers for its Mountain West games.
