One thing that makes the college game so exciting is the raucous home crowds. The fans really get into the games and they pour their heart and soul into every shot, every bad call and every great play. The student sections of these home court crowds have a major impact on the outcome of the game. Their role is to cheer as loud as they can and intimidate the other team along the way. This gives the home team a major advantage and is one of the reasons home teams fare so well in college basketball.
