Cowboy Basketball brings the rowdy back:
Gallagher-Iba Area was the site of the nation’s third-largest attendance jump last season.
GIA was the site of the nation's 3rd largest attendance jump last year. Thank you, Cowboy fans. We felt your energy. #okstate pic.twitter.com/zAlLP3HaZB— Cowboy Basketball (@OSUMBB) August 8, 2017
West Virginia, OU, Arkansas and Kansas were all sellouts this season. After a drop in attendance the last few years, it looks like Cowboy Basketball’s efforts to get people to games is paying off. Keep going to games and making GIA noisy Cowboy fans.

I think this job gives you a lot of avenues potentially so I enjoy doing what I’m doing right now and I think that can go on for a very long time.”
