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: for $12, you get two tickets for best-available seats in any orange section at the University of the Pacific men's basketball game against the University of Hawai'i Warriors on Tuesday, December 6, at 7 p.m. (up to a $24 value). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Veteran headman Bob Thomason leads the Pacific Tigers into a fresh season, aiming to compile the 15th winning season in the last 18 years. Guards Rodrigo De Souza and Lorenzo McCloud patrol the arc, and center Khalil Kelley scores points in the paint with precision footwork and arms strengthened by daily handstand jogging. Sneaker squeaking will abound at the Alex G. Spanos Center as the Tigers clash with future Big West Conference members the Warriors in a tilt fought for pride, early-season wins, and three wishes from the basketball genies locked within the court’s unshattered backboards.
The university sells discounted tickets for seniors (ages 62 and older) and juniors (ages 3–17) for $10, as well as faculty tickets for $6.
