Wasting an Opportunity

January 30, 2003 Executive Editor 0

That’s what we as students are squandering. With the all-important conference schedule in full swing, our own team should be playing in front of a packed house night in and night out. Instead, our players compete in front of a mostly uninspired, unmotivated crowd. Last year, VCU went 13-1 at home, including an undefeated conference record. Average attendance: Less than 5,000 per game. This year, the team has already lost two home games, and the average attendance is about 1,500 less than last year, at a sad 3,530 per game.
