Per TV sports last night...The Barren County game had the 6th largest crowd to attend a girls Sweet 16. Supposedly larger than any of the Boys' crowd this year. Don't know how the rest has gone. I think GRC had a large crowd also.


They brought the whole town.

Any thoughts on how the girls attendance is matching up with the boys?


It won't match up with the boys but I'm hoping the crowds are pretty good. I know its a really cool experience for the girls to get to play at Rupp.

I think it's a combination but mostly it's giving the girls something they have never done before -- play at Rupp Arena. There are all kinds of girls who also grew up watching UK basketball and wondered what it was like to play in Rupp. It also gives mothers/fathers a chance to start a new tradition with their little girls much like fathers/sons did with the state tournament in the 60s and 70s.


As far a central location, Scott County was just down the road and their student section stunk.

I had my doubts but it may end up being the smartest decision the KHSAA has made since moving golf from the spring to the fall.
