When Farmer was at Clay County they got pretty close to selling out. They generally draw 14-16k depending on who is playing. I would guess they would get 20k or so for a NIT 1st round game as some folks would see it as a chance to see them live when they might otherwise not get to. 9k seats at Memorial will go fast. If for nothing else than the novelty.
When all is said and done more is said than done.
