BYU leads the nation in home volleyball attendance

BYU fans propel volleyball team to victroy - George Frey

BYU again leads the nation in home volleyball attendance while going undefeated on their home court.

After going undefeated at home it's no wonder that BYU topped the nation in home game volleyball attendance.  According to the volleyball blog OFF The Block, the Cougars averaged 3,460 spectators for each of their home contests, nearly 500 more than 2nd place Hawai'i.  The average spectators rose by 441 for each game, which was second place to the 631 average increase that Loyola had.

The Cougars had one of their better seasons this last year by winning the MPSF championship against Stanford at the end of April.  BYU benefited from the home crowd throughout the playoffs as all of the matches were played in the Smith Fieldhouse.

Unfortunately for BYU, their luck ran out when they had to go on the road in the NCAA Semifinals as they lost to Stanford, a team they beat three times during the season.  The Cougars finished the season 21-9 and went just 7-8 on the road and 0-1 in neutral site games.

There's definitely something to be said for home court advantage.

BYU loses three seniors to graduation this year, most notably Taylor Sander, who received the nation's top award as the 2014 AVCA player of the year as well as the MPSF player of the year for the second year in a row.  The Cougars will miss Sander's leadership and excellent play making ability next year.

The men's volleyball team is currently on a European trip to take on some club teams from the region.  There's a travel blog of the team's experience that you can check out on BYU's site.
