The NCAA released the 2016-17 attendance figures on Tuesday and the Central Connecticut men's basketball program ranked second in the Northeast Conference in average attendance per game. The Blue Devils' attendance showed an improvement over the 2015-16 season as well.
CCSU's 2017-18 schedule and information on season tickets will be made available at a later date.
Central's average attendance of 1,424 fans per game for 12 home games trailed only conference-champion Mount St. Mary's in 2016-17. The Blue Devils' attendance improved from a mark of 1,274 fans per game over a 14-game slate in 2015-16.
The Blue Devils will enter their second campaign under head coach Donyell Marshall in 2017-18. CCSU is slated to return seven letterwinners from last season, including three starters.
