Go Gaels

Supporters of the men’s basketball team broke the McKeon Pavilion single-season attendance record during the 2006–2007 season. A total of 42,065 fans cheered on the Gaels at their 16 home games, including sellout crowds for games against rivals Santa Clara and Pepperdine, and for the thrilling Jan. 15 victory over Gonzaga. Single-season attendance has increased by more than 150 percent during Randy Bennett’s tenure as coach.
