Globetrotters to visit Jasper; fans decide ruleOctober 29, 2013
From Local Sources
JASPER — The Harlem Globetrotters will take fan interaction to a new level when the 2014 “Fans Rule” World Tour comes to Jasper High School at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8. Online voting is now open at harlemglobetrotters.com/rule, where fans can choose which new game-changing rules they want to see.
The Globetrotters were the first organization in sports and entertainment to let fans vote on rules when the team introduced the concept last year. The team is doing it again, with a twist. The 2014 online ballot includes three new rule possibilities:
”¢ 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 a team misses, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his 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.
Tickets are available online at harlemglobetrotters.com and www.ticketweb.com, and at Jasper High School.
