As of September of last year, the Cross Insurance Center is now a cashless venue.

They will accept credit & debit cards, along with mobile pay options. They also offer cards that guests can load cash onto.

Of course, it will be all the basketball fun that you have come to expect over the years, but they are promising a bunch of new tricks and treats for fans of all ages.

A few years back, we asked Z listeners to submit their trick shot videos, for a chance to win tickets, and we received some incredible entries.

Between the Legs Layup

"The Move" has been entertaining onlookers since middle school. While Dr. J. and Kobe made a between the leg layup look epic. I'm a short chubby white guy with little ups and fans of this shot usually find it hysterical. Enjoy.
