    10) Wednesday (Illinois) -- 9,565

    We only had four weekend Big Ten home games last year. They were four of the top six attended games.

    Tuesdays and Wednesdays are no good (even with Purdue, Maryland and Nebraska) easily taking the bottom four spots. Wisconsin saved Wednesday from total embarrassment.

    More weekends (even if Sunday) is better than more weeknights. This is why Pitino is likely quite happy with this schedule.

    Sunday games against Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, and Nebraska should draw really, really well. Wednesday games against Wisconsin, Indiana, and Maryland should do reasonably well.

    Attendance should be good with this schedule.
    I am very biased about going to college basketball games . I can not fathom how we had such poor attendance. I know there are issues at many schools but it is great entertainment.

    Yes, 100%. YouTubeTV is awesome

    Lack of Saturday games (especially night games) are going to hurt beer sales.
