For the the first time in conference history, the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association was the top conference in NCAA Division III women's basketball attendance. The nine-member women's conference ranked first nationally with a home-game average of 694 fans per game to lead the country.
The Hope College women's basketball team was the national leader in attendance at NCAA Division III for the 11th consecutive season, with the Flying Dutch averaging 954 fans for 13 games at home.
Joining Hope in the top 15 nationally was Trine, as the Thunder ranked 14th overall with an average of 465 fans per home game.
The top regular season game featuring two NCAA Division III women's basketball teams was the Calvin at Hope contest Feb. 6 (1,595); that game ranked third overall for the 2018-19 competition season for Division III women's basketball games.
Although the 2018-19 season marked the first time the MIAA was the national attendance champion for women's basketball, this year marks the 13th time since 1983 an MIAA-member institution has been the national leader.
