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 Tulane Green Wave Basketball men’s and women’s doubleheader on Friday, November 11. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get one doubleheader ticket to Tulane’s Green-Out opening game (a $26 value).
- For $20, you get two doubleheader tickets and two Green-Out T-shirts for Tulane’s Green-Out opening game (a $72 value).<p>
Both tickets packages are valid for the best available seating remaining inside Fogelman Arena. Tulane women’s basketball tips off at 6 p.m., and men’s basketball begins at 8 p.m.
Tulane Green Wave’s male and female athletes light up the scoreboard in hardcourt hoops action against nonconference opponents. The lady Waves, led by head coach Lisa Stockton, begin the night’s opening-game competition against their rival, Loyola University New Orleans Wolfpack. With the return of prolific scorer Kendall Timmons, Tulane’s men’s squad looks to open its season with a win against the Alabama A&M Bulldogs from the Southwestern Athletic Conference in a battle of fast-paced scoring and slow-motion alley-oops. Tulane coaches seek to bolster support for the home team by hosting a Green-Out; a call for fans to adorn only green-colored clothing, sport green face paint, and snack solely on four-leaf clovers.
