Spectrum #14 in the nation

Warning. Ad filled article but the Utah State section is great.

"The Dee Glen Smith Spectrum is a place that hardcore basketball fans know well but often flies under the radar nationally – but Utah State’s dominance there hasn’t and shouldn’t go unnoticed.

Over the past 20 years, the Aggies have won just below 90 percent of their home games and have only dropped 16 non-conference games at home.

Go to a game there and it’s easy to see why. The crowd can be deafening and the student section – called the HURD – is among the best and loudest in the country. Seats also run all the way to court level, so fans are sometimes less than an arm’s length away from the action on the court.

Wichita State head coach Gregg Marshall summed the Smith Spectrum up best following a game in 2010.

“Utah State has 4,000 student tickets and they make some type of impression on the visiting team and it’s just a party. It is one heck of a party. It’s the best I’ve ever seen. In many, many years I’ve been at Duke and Kentucky and UConn and Syracuse and it’s clearly the best I’ve ever seen in terms of atmosphere.”

With that atmosphere and their winning ways, albeit against mid-major competition, the Smith Spectrum was a very easy inclusion on this list."

Don't ask me who was ranked above. I don't care. For me it's #1.
