Georgia Tech Basketball Attendance Watch: Fan Apathy Continues With Yellow Jackets 4th Straight Loss

The Yellow Jackets dropped their fourth straight game in a 73-62 home loss to Florida State. The loss was also Tech's sixth straight to Leonard Hamilton and the Seminoles.

The listed attendance for the game was 5,902 though on site reports says that amount is being very generous.

With 3,289 empty seats at roughly $35 per ticket, Georgia Tech missed out on $115,115 in ticket sale revenue alone. That amount could easily be doubled when you account for missing seat license fees, parking, concessions, and merchandise.

The FSU game brings the season total to $736,530 in lost ticket revenue alone.

UGA $86,310 lost without a full arena
