Syracuse basketball has clinched immortality for the 2nd straight season – Inside the Loud House

Posted: February 27, 2020 at 12:59 am

Syracuse basketball is currently in the midst of its worst six year run ever under head coach Jim Boeheim.

If the Orange miss the NCAA Tournament this season (as theyre currently projected), this will be the first time this team has missed March Madness three times in a six year span ever under Boeheims reign.

Despite that fun fact, the Orange faithful have continued to make the loud house college basketballs best home court advantage.

Per Mike Waters of Syracuse.com, Syracuse hoops has clinched its second straight attendance title.

The Orange still have one more home game coming up on the last day of February vs North Carolina this Saturday. But this past weekend vs Georgia Tech, Syracuse had a crowd of nearly 27,000 which bumped SUs average attendance up to 21,256.

The next closest team is Kentucky who is currently batting second in the country in 2019-20. This season, through 16 regular season contests, have drawn an average of 20,114 fans per game.

While they still have two more home games on the docket vs Auburn and vs Tennessee respectively and both are expected to be near sell-outs, it still doesnt matter.

Rupp Arena, the home of the Kentucky Wildcats, has a full capacity of 20,545 which means its literally impossible with the games remaining for them to leap frog Syracuse.

This is the first time the Orange have won back-to-back attendance titles since the 2014-2015 seasons. Since the Carrier Dome opened in 1980, Syracuse has won the attendance crown 16 times including this season.

With Syracuse likely to miss the NCAA Tournament, outside of a crazy run in the ACC Tournament, this means this team is likely destined for the NIT. For those wondering, the loud house will not be available for the NIT due to construction. It is yet to be determined where Syracuse would host NIT games if they were invited in lieu of the dome.
