The NCAA released its final home attendance numbers for the 2016-17 campaign last week, and the UT women’s basketball team finished No. 27 in the country, averaging 3,744 fans per contest.

Toledo also led the Mid-American Conference in home attendance for an unprecedented 27th consecutive season.

The women’s basketball team averaged 3,744 fans per game in the 2016-17 season. That ranked 27th in the nation and No. 1 in the Mid-American Conference.

The Rockets have ranked in the top 30 nationally in home attendance each of the last six years under Head Coach Tricia Cullop. The 2016-17 Mid-American Conference Champions also finished No. 28 (3,748) in 2011-12, No. 25 (4,012) in 2012-13, No. 24 (3,932) in 2013-14, No. 28 (3,636) in 2014-15, and No. 24 (4,050) in 2015-16.

The Midnight Blue and Gold drew at least 3,500 fans in nine of its 15 home contests this year, including a season best 5,697 against nationally ranked Notre Dame Dec. 18, the sixth largest crowd in school history.

In nine years under Cullop, the Rockets are 112-32 (.778) on their home court, including 63-16 (.797) against MAC opponents. Aiding Toledo’s stellar home mark was a 22-game winning streak over the course of the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons, the second longest home unbeaten stretch in school history.

Toledo also has won at least 11 home contests in seven seasons under Cullop, including a school-record 19 victories during the 2010-11 campaign.
