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 $7, you get one lower-level (section 101-110) ticket to a University of Hartford men's basketball game (up to a $15 value) at Chase Arena at the Reich Family Pavilion. Tickets for children in eighth grade or lower are only $6 through the university. Fortified with a new coaching staff, the University of Hartford Hawks return six sharpshooting seniors to their Division I squad, including star guard and all-time school three-point leader Joe Zeglinski. Choose from the following dates:
- Friday, November 19 vs. Dartmouth at 7 p.m. (home opener)
- Wednesday, November 24 vs. St. Francis (Pennsylvania) at 7 p.m.
- Thursday, December 2 vs. Brown at 7 p.m.
- Monday, January 3 vs. St. Francis (New York) at 7 p.m.
