Note: I was torn between asking this question in SE.Travel or here but I feel it will be better answered by "locals", rather than "travellers". Please let me know if this is an incorrect assumption.
I will be on vacation in the US (California and Nevada) late April / early May. One of the things I wanted to show my children is the specific atmosphere in US stadiums. I chose basketball as this is a sport we can refer to in France.
I am not particularly interested in a match with star teams (which will be not only difficult to get in, but also sitting in the top row of a 40,000 places stadium is not that exciting) - rather in something typical such as a college match.
My question: is there a typical place such games are announced, per city?
In France for instance that would be the web site of the city council (mairie). I was also considering Ticketmaster, but it seems to carry only the top games.
