Big 12 Tournament Twice Breaks Attendance Record
Published March 17, 2013
Attendance for yesterday’s Pac-12 championship game was 11,101 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. That figure is “up from a year ago when the tournament was played” at Staples Center in L.A., where it “averaged 8,936 per session for six sessions.” Through the first five sessions at the MGM, the “average attendance was 10,529, with Friday’s semifinals selling out” (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 3/17).
The MAC tournament semifinals on Friday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland saw 10,324 in attendance for the Akron-Kent State and Ohio Univ.-Western Michigan games. The lower bowl for yesterday's final between Akron and OU "was full, leading officials at The Q to open the curtain in the upper bowl as 12,102 fans were on hand" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 3/17).
