Students missing from b-ball games

I’m so very disappointed at the lack of students at the Bradley home basketball games the past few years, but this year is the worst ever.
Yes, we’ve not had a great winning year, but don’t students realize that their attendance and cheering for the team helps so very much?
We’ve had just one game this year where the student section was packed, and they really had the crowd going.
Sunday afternoon we counted about 15 students [at the men’s basketball game versus the University of Evansville], not counting the band.  It is so very sad.
What is the problem all of a sudden?  Do they just not care?  Well, the rest of us do care. We miss the students so very much.
What can we do to get the students to attend and get the crowd and the team going?
