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 today's Groupon: for $25, you get a ticket to any five regular-season Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne men’s basketball home games, which take place at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on Parnell Avenue. Tickets ordered via today’s deal will be for the best-available seating in lower sections 213–218 and will remain the same for all five games attended.
Led by head coach and former Indiana Hoosier baller Dane Fife, the IPFW Mastodons have tied or broken the school record for D-I level wins five seasons in a row, reaching the Summit League Tournament three years running and dribbling their way to a 16-15 record last season. Cheer on the hard-court heroics of senior hoopsters Ben Botts and Zach Plackemeier as the squad attempts to outduel opponents using a cunning combination of strategy, stamina, and relentlessly good sportsmanship. Like actual mastodons, the team keeps a frenetic competitive agenda, tackling a schedule that includes visits from nonconference foes Toledo and SIU Edwardsville as well as Summit League rivals Oakland and Oral Roberts.
