2011WelcomeSign.JPGAfter 5,547 fans went through the turnstile Thursday, the Big Ten Women's Basketball Tournament is prepared to welcome its 500,000th fan on Friday night.

Through 16 tournaments and one session of the 17th event, the Big Ten has hosted 489,940 fans at its postseason event, leaving the conference just 10,060 patrons shy of the milestone mark.

The 16-year averages for Sessions 2 and 3 are 5,680 and 5,758, respectively, meaning an "Average Friday" for the Big Ten will set the mark regardless. 

However, the conference has had a strong attendance record recently, having welcomed more than 6,200 fans in each of the two Friday sessions over the past three years.
