Creighton’s has huge Qwest Center fan base

Creighton again ranks among the national leaders in men's college basketball attendance. The NCAA announced Wednesday that Creighton's average crowd of almost 14,500 a game put the Bluejays 15th in the country last season.

It's the fourth straight year Creighton has been in the top 15. The Bluejays have led the Missouri Valley Conference in attendance every year since they moved into the Qwest Center for the 2003-04 season. Kentucky led the country in attendance for the fifth straight season with 24,111 fans per game.

With Lincoln's new Haymarket arena expected to open in 2013, UNL Athletic Director Tom Osborne hopes the Huskers will have similar success.
