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 this GrouponLive deal for upper-level seating at a University of Michigan men’s basketball game at Crisler Center. Choose from the following options:
- For $5, you get two tickets for an exhibition game against the Saginaw Valley State Cardinals on Monday, November 5, at 7 p.m. (a $10 value).
- For $10, you get two tickets for the game against the Binghamton University Bearcats on Tuesday, December 11, at 7 p.m. (a $20 value).
- For $10, you get two tickets for the game against the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Thursday, December 20, at 8:30 p.m. (a $20 value).
With a preseason ranking of No. 5, this year’s roster of Wolverines looks to repeat last year’s first-place Big Ten finish as they pounce on the Cardinals during an exhibition game, then battle the Bearcats and Eagles. Maize- and blue bloods follow the up-tempo action from upper-level seats, where high-angle views allow clear sightlines of defensive steals, fast breaks, and the hopeful face of the ball as it soars from beyond the arc. Witness junior guard Tim Hardaway Jr.’s continued ascent, as last season’s second team leader in scoring shows why he was selected to represent Team USA last summer at the FIBA U19 world championships.
Inside the 13,751-person arena, a congregation of UM faithful cheer on the players as they clean the glass with solid rebounding. When the Bearcats and Eagles roll into Crisler Center, the season will have neared its halfway point, at which point fans can gauge whether this year’s squad is bound for a bout of March Madness.
