2011 NCAA Basketball Attendance Figures: UGA Boasts Big Gains, Tech Hopes For Dayton Numbers

The NCAA released 2010-11 college basketball attendance numbers Monday, providing a smattering of nuggets for the Southeastern sports fan. Two of the top five schools rep the SEC, with the Kentucky Wildcats leading the nation and the Tennessee Volunteers ranking No. 5. The North Carolina Tar Heels lead the ACC at No. 4.

Among state teams, the Georgia Bulldogs ranked No. 60 in the nation, enjoying the country's ninth-largest attendance gain since last season, up 1,416 per game to 8,250. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets placed No. 85 (seems high!), and would not object to new coach Brian Gregory bringing some Dayton flair with him -- the Flyers ranked No. 27, doubling Tech's 6,095 per home game.

Elsewhere around Division I in Georgia, the Georgia Southern Eagles brought out 1,538 attendees per night, Kennesaw St. Owls turned up 1,532 and the Georgia St. Panthers welcomed 915. West Georgia and Fort Valley State ranked among Division II leaders, and some school named Marietta showed well in the Division III list but I'm pretty sure it's in Ohio.
