Basketball has all the fast-paced action of soccer, but its much smaller net is defended by five times as many people—it's no wonder that all soccer has been permanently canceled. Celebrate the king of indoor sports with today's Groupon: for $10, get an upper-arena end-of-sideline voucher (a $20 value) to see the Providence College Athletics men's basketball team play in the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Choose between two games:
- Friars vs. St. John’s Red Storm on Saturday, January 1 at 7 p.m.
- Friars vs. Pittsburgh Panthers on Tuesday, January 4 at 7 p.m.
The Providence Friars' men's basketball team looks to slam-dunk wins against upcoming conference matchups as they continue to blow by opposing squads in the 2010–11 season. The Friars are led by Marshon Brooks, the senior guard who ranks second in the Big East and 11th in the nation in scoring, and was named the Big East's Player of the Week (December 6–12) when he averaged 31.3 points and 8.7 rebounds over three games. Watch a weekend shoot-out as the Friars tip off in their first conference game of the year against the rowdy Red Storm of St. John's. Or, attend a weekday slam-fest as the Friars take on another conference opponent in the corporeal form of the 8th-ranked Pittsburgh Panthers team.
