The Attendance Challenge

The February 5, 2010 men’s basketball game marked the 2,000 game in the program’s history at Washington University. Attendance fell well short of the 2,000 fan goal with a total of 1,310 according to the official box score. A light snow fall or any of a number of other factors could have contributed.

Fans who came out to the game received Wash. U. pom-poms. The Bears were down for only a short while when Rochester’s Bill Serle knocked down a three pointer for a two point advantage with 14:21 left in the second half. The Bears came back with a three pointer by Aaron Thompson. From that point on, Wash. U. controlled the game never yielding the lead enroute to a 68-59 victory. Thompson finished with 29 points in the game.
