Ole Miss basketball attendance hit arena lows. How do Rebels fix this?

OXFORD — Attendance numbers for Ole Miss men’s basketball games at The Pavilion hit an all-time low this season.

The announced average attendance for men’s basketball games this season was 6,462 fans per game in an arena that seats 9,500. Discounting the 2020-21 season, when attendance was limited out of COVID-19 precaution, this is the lowest average attendance for Ole Miss games since The Pavilion opened in 2016.

An attendance of 6,462 would fill a little more than two-thirds of The Pavilion. Using the eye test, most Ole Miss crowds weren’t two-thirds full. It was an issue Ole Miss coach Kermit Davis identified early in the season, encouraging fans to show up, support the team and make The Pavilion a tough place for opponents to play.
