Official crowd figure and National tv audience ratings

Anyone know the official crowd figure at RAC Arena last night?

Also, does anyone know the national tv ratings figure on SBS VICELAND last night?

Looked like a healthy sized crowd. Not sure what it was as I can't find any mention of the crowd figure but it looked like around 10,000 from the camera views. Didn't look as big as a Wildcats crowd but certainly not empty either.

Interestingly enough on the BA website, the box score listed the crowd at 3500. Why on earth would they falsely publish that? If you were to put a made up figure, surely you'd make your sport look good and say something like 10,000. BA can be such amateurs sometimes it's frustrating.

Game 2 looks like a full house however I wonder how many would be disappointed that both Mills and Bogut are not playing and the NBL guys getting a lot of court time (excluding Bogut who is still a big drawcard)

Seeing Mills, Bogut and Baynes (dnp game 1) would have been a big factor in the high ticket prices and to have them rest is not very fair. And i say that knowing that these are warm up games and managing your best players is important, so this is coming from purely the fans perspective that bought expensive tickets and have been somewhat undersold a product, for those that wanted to see the best players play.

Please tell me you're watching on TV and not here at the venue. Bigger than last night but still probably in the 10k ballpark.

Yes watching on TV. Can see a few scatteted empty blocks but it does look much bigger than game 1. Ok full house not the right term, but near capacity would be more accurate, going by how it looks on TV. Not sure if the 3rd tier is open as its too dark on TV to tell.

It is. Left baseline and the upper corners are almost empty though.

Solid crowd and improved on Friday. I'm guessing the 530 tip off time would've been too difficult for non city workers to get to on Friday hence the smaller number
