The Kansas men's basketball team led its conference in attendance for the 24th straight year, once again posting the Big 12's highest attendance numbers during the 2009-10 season.
KU averaged 16,433 fans per home game, which ranked ninth nationally. That included 18 games at Allen Fieldhouse and one "home" game played at Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo., which also was included in the home season-ticket package.
“There is no doubt we have the greatest fans in the country and this run since the 1980s is a testament to that,” KU coach Bill Self said in a release.
Since the 1977-78 season, KU has posted a top-10 attendance figure nationally 16 times.
For all games in the 2009-10 season, Kansas ranked eighth with 562,726 fans, which also was first in the conference.
The Big 12, meanwhile, set a home attendance average record of 11,214, ranking third among all leagues.
KU currently has a 147-game sellout streak in Allen Fieldhouse.
