Women's hoops school?

I'm looking at the NCAA News' attendance figures for men's and women's basketball this season.

You won't find LSU among the men's basketball attendance leaders. Kentucky, Tennessee and Arkansas are it for the SEC.

But you will find LSU's women ranked No. 17 in attendance with an average of more than 5,000 per game.

Granted, there is a lot that goes into that - Pack the PMAC and other promotions.

But the fact of the matter is LSU fans haven't gravitated toward men's basketball since Shaq left in the early 1990s.

Of course, a little more marketing and promotion from the school probably wouldn't hurt either.
