On Saturday, December 8, the distinguished men's and women's basketball programs from the University of Texas and UCLA square off for the inaugural MD Anderson Proton Therapy Showcase. The men's contest showcases a bounty of talented young stars, including UT's Sheldon McClellan. The sophomore guard leads the offensive attack by averaging 17.5 points per game, hitting 90.2% of his free throws, and designing plays from a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War hidden in his sneakers. The 24th-ranked men's team in USA Today's Coaches Poll, UCLA features guard Jordan Adams, who became the first freshman in UCLA history to post more than 20 points in each of his first three games this season.
Before that, the Texas women's team, lead by new head coach Karen Aston, open the doubleheader against a UCLA squad that boasts All-American player Jasmine Dixon. Dixon and her fellow Bruins look to contain Longhorns star forward Nneka Enemkpali, who has started the 2012–13 season putting up 24 points per game and hitting 68.6% of her shots from the field.
Both games will be played on a court constructed on the field at Reliant Stadium, a 125,000-square-foot venue accustomed to hosting rodeos and NFL football games beneath its retractable roof and retractable moon.
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.
