VOTE: Best Coaches In American Sports

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Final Four has set an NCAA basketball attendance record at the billion-dollar home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The national semifinals drew 79,444 on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium, beating the previous record of 78,129 when Kentucky beat Michigan State in a regular-season game at Ford Field in Detroit on Dec. 13, 2003.

The crowd also topped the Final Four mark of 75,421 from 2011 at Reliant Stadium in Houston.

It wasn’t the biggest basketball crowd in the Cowboys’ stadium. The NBA All-Star game drew 108,713 in 2010, less than a year after the opening of the $1.2 billion showplace with a huge video board that hangs above the field of play.
