The Harlem Globetrotters will be playing the game, but fans will write the rules when the Globetrotters visit the Convocation Center at California University of Pennsylvania.
The Globetrotters’ interactive “You Write the Rules” tour will stop at Cal U. at 7 p.m. March 7.
Before the show, families can go online at www.harlemglobetrotters.com to vote for which groundbreaking rule they want to become part of the game. They might ask players to use two basketballs at once, for instance, or double the points for each basket made – what one Globetrotter calls “buy one, get one free.”
After every game, players remain on the court for at least 15 minutes to sign autographs and have photographs taken with fans.
Fans who purchase the additional “Magic Pass” can spend time on the court with the Globetrotters one-on-one, shooting baskets, trying out ball tricks, or collecting autographs and photos.
The Globetrotters’ roster features Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang and Dizzy Grant, along with the world’s tallest pro basketball player, 7-foot-8-inch Tiny Sturgess, the shortest Globetrotter ever, 5-foot-2-inch Too Tall Hall and female players TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Mighty Mitchell.
Ticket prices range from $25 to $55; admission to the special “Magic Pass” pre-show costs an additional $20 per person. Parking is included in the price of admission.
Tickets are available through Ticketmaster or at the Convocation Center box office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays until the day of the show.
