[ATTENDANCE WATCH] With five weeks to go before the men's regular season ends, seven teams, led by UC San Barbara (5,033), are averaging more than 3,000 fans a game, 12 teams, including four from the ACC, are averaging more than 2,000 a game, and five conferences, led by the ACC (1,844), are averaging more than 1,000 fans a game.

Most impressive is the fact that 10 of the 12 teams averaging more than 2,000 a game -- all but UC Santa Barbara, which finished with an NCAA record average of 5,873 last season, and New Mexico -- have seen their average attendance increase over last season's final average.
