    I know they return most of their production. Should be fun watching them this year.
    Are they favored by the "experts" to win the conference? Oakland? They must be 1 or 2.

    Picked second behind Oakland. Drew McDonald, of NCC, preseason player of the year as a junior!
    McDonald named #HLMBB Preseason Player of the Year; @NKUnorseMBB picked second - NKU Athletics

    Paul Djoko seems to be one of the top young players in France. Played really well at the FIBA 3 on3. I honestly had never heard of him until looking at the Norse roster and googling him. His signing must have flown under the radar. Does anyone else know anything about this kid?

    That sounds really impressive! Will be a player to watch this year.

    So far this year, NKU attendance is dreadful. Biggest crowd was just over 4K to see the Norse play Morehead State on a Saturday in the 9,400-seat BB&T Arena. UC just attracted almost 6K on a Tuesday for a game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. I don't see things improving any for NKU when the conference portion of the season begins.

    Have you looked at the attendance of other D1 schools? Average attendance of 4,000 probably puts NKU in the top half of D1 schools.

    And UC only drew 6,000? That is much more alarming IMO than NKU at 4,000.

    As are you.

    According to camelman, what would an acceptable attendance level at NKU games be?

    More than 50% full CONSISTENTLY would be a nice start. Not just one game a year above 4K. Now what does oldbird think?

    Using last year's stats 4000 would put a school in about the top 40%.

    Dreadful, come on dude. You act like 4,000 is something to scoff at for a mid major school. They've come a long way from getting 1,000 at Regents Hall.

    I think you'll see the number be closer to 5K after the New Year on a consistent basis. I admit that I'm optimistic, but I have more to gain from most with a good crowd being there.

    They won't draw much more than that tonight against Cleveland State too.

    Conference play will be much better for UC. They drew 8,100 against Mississippi State which was their only non-conference draw.
