Memphis basketball attendance statistics the past two seasons reflect back-to-back Elite Eight campaigns. Once again the Tigers averaged more than 14,000 tickets sold per home game in 2006-2007.
The Tigers experienced a minor drop in attendance despite playing fewer high powered teams at FedExForum in '06-'07. In '05-'06 the Tigers' non-conference home schedule included Tennessee, Gonzaga, and Texas; all NCAA Tournament teams that season.
This past season top home opponents for the Tigers included Cincinnati and Ole Miss, two teams that failed to make it to the Big Dance the past two years.
Below are the numbers:
Season, number of home games, total attendance, average attendance
'05-'06, 20 games, 297,328, 14,867
'06-'07, 19 games, 276,014, 14, 527
