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 GrouponLive deal to see the Saint Louis University Billikens men’s basketball team square off against the University of Dayton Flyers at Chaifetz Arena on Saturday, February 4, at 4 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get one ticket for general-admission seating in Section B, highlighted in yellow, or Section C, highlighted in purple on the seating chart (a $24.50 value).
- For $16, you get one ticket for reserved seating in Section A, highlighted in green on the seating chart (a $32 value).<p>
Clustered together at the top of the Atlantic 10 conference standings, both the Billikens and Flyers play with much at stake, as the conference and NCAA tourneys loom just over February’s horizon. During this crucial late-season stretch, legendary head coach Rick Majerus fortifies his team with endurance gleaned from 24 years of coaching, confidence amassed from notching nearly 500 victories, and calluses accrued from erasing 97,000 dry-erase boards in a row. Fans will cheer on leading scorer and senior forward Brian Conklin as he bangs on the blocks against the Flyers’ frontcourt. The physical play down low should stamp Conklin’s passport for plenty of trips to the charity stripe, where he strives to simultaneously sink 85% of his shots and plot the dénouement for his fantasy-novel trilogy.
Groups of hoopsters should redeem their Groupons at the same time to ensure the painted letters on their torsos form an unbroken message of encouragement.
