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 today’s Groupon to an Iowa Energy home basketball game at Wells Fargo Arena on Saturday, December 17, at 7 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $14, you get a sideline ticket package for one (a $26 total value).
- For $26, you get a sideline ticket package for two (a $53 total value).<p>
The package includes the following for each person: - One sideline ticket (a $20 value) - One soda (a $3 value) - One popcorn (a $3 value)<p>
The Iowa Energy’s roster of high-flying net seekers looks to whittle down NBA Development League rivals the Reno Bighorns during a board-rattling matchup at the Wells Fargo Arena. With more than 20 points per game, star forward Moses Ehambe routinely electrifies the crowd with a flurry of long-range field goals and no-look passes to players disguised as backboards. The Bighorns’ usual tactics of charging the paint will prove all for naught as 6’11” center Jarrid Famous holds his arms up like two lightning rods to swat away layups.
Fans spill sodas and popcorn as they leap from their seats to cheer on the Energy and its foot-flinging counterparts, the High Voltage dancers. During breaks and halftime, the dancers trade cheerleading duties with charged-up mascot Surge, who texts play-call suggestions to referees in celebration of Social Media Night.
