LSU (16-1, 3-0 SEC) ranks 15th in the nation according to the unofficial rankings produced by the Univ. of Wisconsin each week. The Lady Tigers are averaging 5,306 fans per home game.
"Most people will point to the success of last year's team and our 16-1 start this year, but there's so much more involved in our attendance reaching new heights, " LSU head coach Pokey Chatman said. "It starts with the quality of the product that's been put on the floor coupled with (Athletics Director) Skip Bertman's commitment to market and promote our program at the highest level. I hope the numbers continue to soar!"
So far this season a total of 37,140 fans have watched the Lady Tigers compile a 7-0 record in the Maravich Center. LSU has five home games remaining, including Thursday against Arkansas and a Feb. 10 battle with Tennessee on national television.
LSU's largest crowd this season, 10,624, witnessed the Lady Tigers defeat Georgia on Jan. 8 as part of the annual Pack the PMAC promotion. That crowd ranks as the 25th largest attended game in the nation this season as well as the third largest crowd in Lady Tigers' history.
Five of LSU's seven home games this season have had at least 4,900 fans in attendance, including the then 15th largest crowd in history at 5,343 against Tulane on Jan. 2.
LSU will look to keep the solid attendance figures on Thursday when they host Arkansas at 7 p.m. CST in the Maravich Center.
