In 1891, James Naismith mounted two peach baskets on opposite walls of a gym, inventing the rudimentary version of what we know today as “shelving.” Take your basketball off this grand innovation with this GrouponLive deal for a G-Pass to see the Maggie Dixon Classic at Madison Square Garden on Sunday, December 9, at 11 a.m. Doors open at 10 a.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call. Choose from the following seating options:
- For $27, you get one G-Pass for 100-level center seating (up to a $55.60 value, including all fees).
- For $18, you get one G-Pass for 100-level corner seating (up to a $37.50 value, including all fees).

Under the bright lights of the world-famous Madison Square Garden arena, four of the best women’s college basketball teams in the country tip off in the Maggie Dixon Classic. The first game pits Louisiana Tech against Rutgers before Duke takes on St. John’s. Legendary college player and WNBA superstar Teresa Weatherspoon makes her Garden coaching debut, leading Louisiana Tech with the help of recently transferred guard Janay Borum. On the other side of the court, Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer commands the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, trusting the ball-handling skills of returning top scorer Monique Oliver. Ranked No. 3 nationally in the preseason poll, Duke looks to replay its 2012 Sweet Sixteen victory over St. John's, whose first-year coach, Joe Tartamella, turns his hopes to a strong corps of returning scorers and a rigorously tested system of lucky socks.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
