Humans have been putting spherical objects in hoops for centuries, but until the invention of the dunk, the fast break, and face dribbling, it wasn’t an activity worth watching. See if “basketball” lives up to the hype with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the Duquesne Dukes take on the Richmond Spiders in the Red Out game at the A.J. Palumbo Center on Saturday, February 4, at 7 p.m. For $10, you get a basketball outing for one (a $21 total value), which includes:
- One ticket for seating in the red chair-back sections (a $15 value)
- One hot dog (a $3 value)
- One Pepsi (a $3 value)
- One complimentary Duquesne Dukes T-shirt for all fans in attendance<p>
The 2011–12 season of Duquesne Dukes men’s basketball boils to a fever pitch in a key conference battle one month before the Atlantic 10 tournament that leads to the championship in Atlantic City. As national TV cameras pan over an arena swathed in complimentary red threads, the Dukes’ roster rallies for an inspiring performance from sophomore T.J. McConnell. Last season, the 2011 Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year sank more than 300 points and snatched nearly three steals per game, mostly by fooling opponents with fake mustaches resembling those of his teammates. Upperclassmen Sean Johnson and B.J. Monteiro join McConnell in a backcourt that protects the ball with a 6.1 turnover margin, better than all but two other NCAA teams. The Red Panda acrobatic show sends jaws floorward with Chinese-trained stunt performers who spill onto the court at halftime and tumble silently through the rafters at all other times.
