Although Kentucky’s basketball team is not ranked in the Top 5 this season, their fan base is. According to Nielsen, Kentucky is No. 1 for Top Local Fanbase. Nielsen counted how many fans “watched, attended or listened to” their local team in the past year. Kentucky came at No.1 with 67%. I’m not surprised but, it is still crazy to see the numbers.
