Which schools boast the best student sections in college basketball? It’s a question that is absolutely impossible to answer with anything resembling neutrality or tangible evidence—until now.

The first part of creating this list was identifying what makes one student section better than the other. For the basis of this article…

A good student section is one that leads the entire stadium in creating an atmosphere, by any means necessary, and that gives their school opportunities to win that they do not receive on the road.

I have not been to every basketball stadium in the country so taking “usual” methods of formulating this list would be nothing more than hearsay. 

Say no to hearsay! Say yes to math!

It is with great pride, pleasure and fatigue (I’ve been at this for hours) that I introduce the ASS (Advantage from the Student Section).

There were three variables used to calculate ASS. Click on to see them before getting to the final values.
