I was really disappointed in the crowds at the 3A/4A tournament. There were some games with huge crowds which was great to see. Davis HS had a great showing and a nice size crowd but there were too many games that didn't quite match up to their showing. On the girls side, the crowds were small and even for the school i support, Prairie, which won the state championship, they were no better. I have been following that school for a long time and I can't ever remember a smaller crowd for the finals.
I really do think that the rise in gas pricing didn't help. It is almost like a psychological barrier that makes people stay home even though the trip would only have cost a few dollars more.
