2017’s Best Cities for College Basketball Fans

Which destinations are the very best for hoops enthusiasts? WalletHub.com put together a list of the Best Cities for College Hoops Fans and the Lexington made the list! There’s a very good reason why they aren’t ranked higher.

To find 2017’s top spots for NCAA hoops, WalletHub crunched the numbers on 291 U.S. cities using seven key metrics. They range from the number of teams per city and the winning percentage of each to stadium capacity and social-media engagement.

Biggest negative for Lexington, Ky., is that they have the most expensive season tickets, starting at $950, or 21 times more than a season of hoops in Hamilton, N.Y. ($45). Louisville ranked in the Top 6 with most expensive season tickets as well.
