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 $8, you get one 300-level premium seat at the University of Rhode Island men's basketball game against the Fordham University Rams at the Ryan Center, located in Kingston (a $19 value).
Come see the Runnin' Rams slam-dunkicize their A-10 rivals on Wednesday, February 2, at 7 p.m., and help cheer head coach Jim Baron's team onto victory. Led by senior forward Delroy James and Serbian three-point sharpshooter Nikola Malesevic, this year’s Runnin’ Rams squadron has posted big non-conference wins over the ACC’s Boston College and 2008 NCAA cinderella Davidson. With a capacity of 7,700, the Ryan Center takes on a whole new atmosphere for basketball games, as school songs are played, blocked shots enliven the crowd, and the referees get to fly around on mini jet-packs. Premium seats offer a close proximity to the center court.
