The attendance comparison at the Verizon Center isn't close. ACC v B1G.


I found it interesting that the Big Ten wouldn't put out attendance numbers for their tournament until the final game. 12,902 attended Michigan v Wisconsin yesterday. That compares to 20,719 that attended Virginia v North Carolina a year ago.

I still think fans have to travel to fill up these arenas. It's very hard to fill them up with local support alone. And the majority of the rabid Big Ten basketball fans are over 500 miles away from the Verizon center with the exception of Maryland fans.

I also saw tweets complaining that there wasn't a pub or bar within walking distance of the Verizon Center that had BTN. All of the games before the semifinal were exclusively on the Big Ten Network. If the ACC ever puts our tournament on the ACC Network, we need to make sure not to have this issue at a venue.
