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 $12, you get two general-admission tickets to the University of the Pacific's men's basketball game on January 8 at 7 p.m. (up to a $24 value). With six 20-win seasons in the past seven years under veteran headman Bob Thomason, the Pacific Tigers seek to improve on last year's run to the finals of the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. Guards Demetrece Young and Terrell Smith patrol the arc, while power forward Sam Willard scores points in the paint with precision footwork and arms strengthened by daily handstand jogging. Take in all the action at the Alex G. Spanos Center as the Tigers clash with the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos in a Big West Conference tilt fought for pride, conference ranking, and three wishes from the basketball genies locked within the court’s unshattered backboards.
