In basketball, a lazy player who waits for easy shots is called a cherry picker, while a peach thrower hides behind taller players and lobs nectarines at the referee. Enjoy the fruits of sport with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two University of Oklahoma Men's Basketball reserved tickets for level 3 seating, as well as two hot dogs and two drinks (a $36 value). Games are held at the Lloyd Noble Center on the OU campus in Norman. Watch the Sooners take on one of the following teams:
- The Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs on Thursday, December 9, at 7 p.m.
- The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles on Saturday, December 11, at 2 p.m.
- The Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, January 8, at 3 p.m.
- The Texas Tech Red Raiders on Tuesday, January 18, at 7 p.m.
This year's Sooners, led by coach Jeff Capel and senior guard Cade Davis, carry on the traditions of a basketball program that's made 13 NCAA Tournament appearances since 1995, including a 2009 run to the Elite Eight. Watch as the team defends its undefeated home record against Gardner-Webb, or witness its assault on the Oral Roberts squad with a hailstorm of no-look passes and punishingly good sportsmanship. Patient Sooner supporters can also opt to wait and watch OU in its Big 12 season-opener against Texas A&M on January 8 or cheer on the team January 18 as it avenges last year's one-point home loss to Texas Tech. Each game gives you the chance to revel in a spirited sea of crimson and cream with a hot dog in one hand, a soda in another, and a "#1 Sooner Fan" foam finger on another.
