The sport of basketball has held a firm place among America’s most beloved pastimes ever since it spun off from the popular breakfast spread NBA Jam. Spread your friends across a row of seats with today’s GrouponLive deal to see a Minnesota Golden Gophers women’s basketball game at Williams Arena. For $25, you get an outing for two (a $50 total value), which includes:
- Two lower-level chair-back tickets for seating in sections 101–120 (a $15 value each)
- One $20 food voucher valid for Campus Pizza at 825 Washington Avenue SE, good through March 17, 2012.<p>
Spurred by a recent victory over highly ranked Ohio State, the Golden Gophers continue their ascent to the top of the Big Ten during two rim-rattling bouts against conference foes. Head Coach Pam Borton cultivates a blossoming roster that includes freshman star Rachel Banham, whose rafter-scraping three-point shots add up to 16 points per game and knock down any pencils stuck in the arena ceiling. After Kiara Buford dissects defenses and Katie Loberg governs the post with seven rebounds per game, Gopher fans marching to the tune of the university’s fight song can head ten minutes south for $20 worth of pizzas, calzones, and more at Campus Pizza. Hoops games take place at the venerable Williams Arena, which is affectionately called The Barn and features a raised court that brings players closer to fans and fans closer to determining which player keeps the most eye contact with fans.
