NCAA D-I sets attendance mark; no Pac-10 teams in mix

NCAA Division-I women’s basketball set another attendance record, drawing 8,127,779 fans for the 2010-11 season. The previous D-I record was 8,090,084 set in 2007-08.
Overall, the three levels of NCAA basketball drew 11,159,837 fans — the second largest attendance total all-time, short of the record 11,160,293 set in 2008-09.
Individually, Tennessee led all schools with an average of 12,599 fans. There weren’t any Pac-10 or soon-to-be Pac-12 schools among the top-10, Stanford averaging a conference-best 4,839 fans this season. Overall, the Pac-10 drew 332,153 fans.
Washington, which had a fourth-consecutive losing season, ranked fourth in the conference in attendance, averaging 2,411 fans. But a source said those numbers were included plenty of comp tickets.
Washington State was last in conference attendance, averaging 608 fans for 12 home games.
Below is the top-10 D-I attendance list, as provided by the NCAA.
