Plenty of Creighton fans packed the Cenutrylink Center during each home game in the 2016-17 season, and the attendance numbers released by the NCAA Tuesday show it.
The Jays come in at No. 5 nationally in home attendance, making it the sixth straight season Creighton has made the top 10 in attendance. An average of 17,413 Bluejay fans made their way through the gates at the Link each home game, and a total of 296,013 for the season.
Kentucky, Syracuse, Louisville and North Carolina were the only schools to top Creighton in attendance. Creighton has led its conference in attendance for the last 14 seasons and topped the BIG EAST again this year.
