What You'll Get
Before the invention of the tip-off, basketball games began with a spelling bee, with possession going to the first team to correctly spell Dikembe Mutombo. Revel in the game's recent innovations with today's Groupon to the Georgetown University Hoyas men's basketball home game against the Cincinnati Bearcats at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23. Choose from two seating options:
- For $20, you get a lower-bowl ticket (a $40 value).
- For $10, you get an upper-bowl ticket (a $25 value).
There will be a $1.25 ticketing fee assessed for each ticket in addition to the price of the Groupon.
Treading down the championship corridors originally walked by his father, dribble director John Thompson III and his squad stay in the hunt for NCAA trophies with a mixture of fundamental tactics and unteachable talent. Georgetown's hardwood prowess has paid dunk-worthy dividends during the 2010–11 season, with the Hoyas notching wins over fearsome ranked opponents, including the No. 15 Louisville Cardinals, No. 8 Villanova Wildcats, and No. 3 Alpha Centauri Murderbots. Senior guards Austin Freeman and Chris Wright wind down the regular season with their second-to-last home appearances as they welcome the Cincinnati Bearcats to the Verizon Center for a late Big East tilt that could help settle tournament seeding, national ranking, and the redistricting of Basketball Congress.
Win or lose, fans can whoop a heartfelt "Hoya Saxa!" from the camaraderie-inducing confines of the Verizon Center's multiple tiers. Catch courtside action from the lower bowl, or hit the heights with an upper-bowl perch, whose colorful, banner-laden ceilings are often used as roosts by visiting owl ambassadors.
