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 Groupon: for $18, you get $40 worth of tickets to the Providence Friars men's basketball game vs. the DePaul Blue Demons at the Dunkin' Donuts Center at 9 p.m. on Thursday, February 17.
This year's Friars squad, currently 14–10, looks to best conference rivals, the DePaul Blue Demons, in a throw down set to ignite the slick courts of the Dunkin' Donuts Center. Savor the Thursday-night shoot-out from any variation of seats at the arena. Upper-section tickets range $12–$30 and provide high-rise views of the court and towering center Ray Hall's sideburns. Prices for the lower-level range $27–$85 and floor seats are $250. The $40 seats situate Friars fans at the corners of the court, close enough to the student section to feed off their contagious school spirit, but far enough away to avoid any contractible senioritis.
Senior guard Marshon Brooks leads the team with an impressive array of accomplishments, including a high rank in the Big East for points per game––being the first Friar to score 40 points in a Big East game in more than two decades––and achieving an 80% trashcan shot percentage for crumpled up pieces of paper and tin-foil sandwich wrappings.
