BYU's men's basketball attendance figures are among the elite in the country, according to numbers released by the NCAA on Wednesday.

In their 18 home games during the 2012-13 season, the Cougars' average attendance was 15,986. That is good enough for 13th nationally and is the best from teams in the West.

Kentucky led the country by averaging 23,099 fans per home game. Syracuse (22,439), Louisville (21,571), North Carolina (19,350) and Indiana (17,412) round out the top five.
