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 Groupon to see the Wichita State men’s basketball team play the University of Alabama at Birmingham at INTRUST Bank Arena on Friday, November 25, at 7:05 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $30, you get two Level 3 tickets (up to a $80.50 value, including all fees normally charged for online purchases).

Fueled by their success as winners of last season’s men’s NIT tournament, the Wichita State Shockers hope to dribble and dunk their way to victory against the 2011 NCAA Tournament participants from the University of Alabama at Birmingham Blazers. In the teams’ first faceoff since 2007, the Shockers aim to carry their roaring head start on the season all the way onto the national scene while fans strive to fill the 15,000-seat INTRUST Bank Arena with home-court atmosphere. Crowds stay riveted to the action via a four-sided scoreboard that engages spectators via high-resolution video, LED screens, and flocks of carrier pigeons bearing score updates to the farthest seats.
