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: for $12, you get one ticket to see the University of North Carolina Greensboro Spartans men's basketball team play the North Carolina A&T Aggies at the Greensboro Coliseum on Monday, November 28, at 7 p.m. (a $25.15 value).

Under the guidance of Head Coach Mike Dement, the UNCG Spartans roster of talented veterans and fresh recruits sprint into the 2011 season hoping to enter the Southern Conference Tournament for a second year. During last season's challenging nonconference schedule, the Spartans learned to take their game to a new level, mastering speedy plays, fierce defense, and seamless Carolina shag kicks. After making the Southern Conference All-Freshman team last season, sophomore Trevis Simpson boasts an average of 12.5 points per game and a 42-inch vertical leap. Team leader in assists, guard Kyle Randall facilitates swishes with his keen eye and precise passes delivered via homing pigeon. The Spartans will host fellow Greensboro b-ballers the NC A&T Aggies in a competition that decides once and for all who gets to hang out at the local diner.
