Scientists are still puzzled by the contents of the modern basketball and believe it to be filled either with helium or several baseballs. Contemplate this conundrum with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two tickets to the University of Michigan men's basketball game against the Wisconsin Badgers at Crisler Arena on Wednesday, February 23 at 5:30 p.m. (a $30 value). Tickets are valid for two gold level seats, which will be assigned on a first-redeemed, first-served basis at Crisler Arena's will call on game day.
As the official Wolverines hoops haven for more than 40 years, Crisler Arena holds more than 13,000 rollicking gold-and-blue brethren for each of the storied program's hard-fought home games. Behind playmaking sophomore guard Darius Morris and freshman phenom Tim Hardaway Jr., the Wolverines are ready to challenge conference opponents with a fury of fast breaks, dunks, dribbles, and dirty dishes. Michigan's Big Ten matchup against the Badgers from Madison also marks Fan Appreciation Night, during which ardent hoops hounds are rewarded for their unconditional basketball jones with special prizes and performances by the Michigan dance team. Cheer on Coach Beilein's crew of collegiate ballers as they polish glass backboards and refinish hardwood floors in a valiant attempt to intimidate their haplessly smaller, red-clad weasel prey.
