And don't say "win more games", because real fans will watch regardless. Where are the TRUE fans? There's got to be at least 10-15,000 people interested in basketball in the BR area!
There's not much loyalty to the bball program and it drives me nuts!
I'm talking about generating interest right now
, and getting butts in the seats.
We have a team that busts their asses out on the court, but they are not rewarded by our support. Some games have been ugly to be sure, but I don't think fans realize how their presence and noise energizes a team. Some of those games might not have been so ugly if there'd been loads of noisy fans pulling the team to a win. That's what fans are for! Anyone who attended last year's home game against #10 Marquette can attest to the power of LOUD support.
I see it as enthusiastic support creates fun games and some good results, due to inspiring extra team effort. And a silent, empty PMAC can cause lack-luster mediocre play.
Here's a quote from Anthony Hickey:
"I would love to see the PMAC sold out before I leave here. That’s my goal — to try and get as many people in there as possible".
Let's help him do that soon.
