Harlem Globetrotters coming to McGuirk Monday

The Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their signature exhibition basketball style and world-famous family entertainment to Central Michigan University.

McGuirk Arena will house the event at 7 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 27.

The team is coming to CMU as part of their 2014 Fans Rule the World Tour, where they have enacted many new aspects of their performance, including where fans can vote on new rules to be used in games.

Some new proposed rules include the Hot Hand Jersey, where the player wearing the jersey gets double the points when scoring, or the Trick Shot Challenge, where the teams challenge each other to make trick shots with five points awarded to a team that makes a trick shot and five points given to the opposition if the shot is missed.

The Globetrotters play exhibition basketball against other teams such as the Washington Generals and combine comedy and theater with the athleticism of the sport.

Ticket prices range from $21 to $201 and are available for purchase through Ticket Central.
