A Record-Setting Day for Women’s Basketball

Oct 16, 2023

Sunday was a pivotal day for women’s basketball, as multiple records were broken at the professional and collegiate level.

Iowa hosted DePaul at Kinnick Stadium — home of the Hawkeyes’ football team — for an exhibition game that set a women’s basketball attendance record with 55,646 fans.

In Brooklyn, the New York Liberty beat the Las Vegas Aces in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals at the Barclays Center — and the game delivered the highest gate receipt on record for the league. With an attendance of 17,143, no WNBA game has ever brought in more ticket revenue than Sunday’s matchup, according to the Liberty. The exact dollar figure was not available.
