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 to see the University of South Carolina women’s basketball team play the Arkansas Razorbacks at Colonial Life Arena.

In their final game before conference tournaments tip off, the USC women’s basketball team storms into a vital late-season matchup with rival Arkansas as both teams jockey for a top spot in the SEC. Head coach and three-time Olympic gold medalist Dawn Staley has spearheaded her squad’s season-long sprint toward the national ranks, including South Carolina’s first win against Tennessee since 1980. While sinking nothing-but-mouth shots with hot dogs and sodas, SC supporters can marvel at the aerial acrobatics and feathered sneakers of Markeshia Grant, whose soaring three-pointers have ballooned to an average of 11.3 points per game. After finishing among the SEC’s top scorers a year ago, La’Keisha Sutton continues to ransack defenses for 9.6 points per game, and guard Ieasia Walker’s team-leading 53 steals make opposing passers think twice before using the ball to pass notes back and forth.
