Harlem Globetrotters Coming to the Jordan Center

The world-famous and somehow unbeatable Harlem Globetrotters announced that they will be visiting the Bryce Jordan Center on March 5, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. as part of their “Fans Rule” world tour.

The tour gives fans the choice to add one wacky rule to the game by voting, including things like a “trick shot challenge” where teams can attempt a trick shot for five points, however, if they miss, the other team gets five points.

The Globetrotters will provide a different kind of basketball toward the end of the college season, providing University Park with high-flying dunks, crazy ball-handling moves, and other things that definitely wouldn’t be allowed in NCAA games. As usual, the team will stay on the court after the game to give autographs and talk with fans.

Tickets start at $23.50 with a 25 percent discount for all students.

Fun fact: Former Penn State center and long-time university trustee Jesse Arnelle was a Harlem Globetrorrer in the 1950s.

He is lovingly (?) known around the staff as Baby Mike which may or may not be because he has a child (hint: it’s not).
