Harlem Globetrotters return to rock the rims of Shasta College

Dec 10, 2013 1:10 PM

The world renowned Harlem Globetrotters will bring their “Fans Rule” World Tour to Shasta College Gym in Redding on January 14. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The one-of-a-kind family show features dizzying ball handling skills, jaw-dropping trick shots, soaring slam dunks all wrapped up in a carnival of comedy certain to entertain all ages. After every game the stars remain on the court for autographs and photographs with fans.

Tickets for the show are $27 for general admission and $88 courtside. A “magic pass” for an additional $22 per person allows for a rare opportunity to spend time on the court with the Globetrotters a half hour before the main show begins.

The Globetrotters became the first sports and entertainment act to allow fans to vote on rules after introducing the concept last year.

. The 2014 online ballot includes three never-before-seen revolutionary rules:

· Hot Hand Jersey – Both teams will have a “Hot Hand Jersey” they can pass among each other. The player who is wearing this jersey will receive double points on made baskets.

· Make or Miss – The quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.

· Trick Shot Challenge – Via three challenge flags per team, each coach can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, they earn five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.

Online voting is now open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where all fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see in their hometown.
