Indiana had an average attendance 17,412 in 19 home games last season, setting a school record that had stood since 2001-02. Assembly Hall’s seating capacity is 17,472.
The Hoosiers’ average attendance was the best in the Big Ten and ranked fifth nationally. It’s only the second time since 1985 that Indiana has ranked in the top five programs nationally in attendance.
“I continue to be overwhelmed by the spirit and generosity of so many who support our program every day,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a statement. “Our season ticket holders are as loyal a group as you will find.
“You really had a sense early in the season that our players had forged a strong bond with our fans, young and old alike. That was very evident starting with Hoosier Hysteria, the North Carolina game and all of the great battles we had during the Big Ten season.”
