I think the goal should be 1,700+. Allow for a little bit of slippage post CJ, but hope that you can continue to build on the momentum generated. It seems that the Administration and Athletic Department are trying to increase transportation options and the formation of Clutch’s Crew seems to have helped increase student interest. Students are the key (other than performance on the court) as they create the atmosphere and make the environment more fun for the casual fan. Staying above 1,700 is ambitious for sure, but that is what they should be stiving for IMO.
Not only is the OOC schedule mundane for Lehigh fans but they aren’t exactly schools with alumni bases or students that will come to Bethlehem. Please please please find a way to get some of the Philly mid majors on the schedule.
