The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters are coming to Allan Hancock College!

The Globetrotters are bringing their new “Pushing the Limits” World Tour to the Joe White Memorial Gym on Hancock’s Santa Maria campus on Feb. 13. at 7 p.m.

The “Pushing the Limits” World Tour ups the ante and creates even bigger moments and memories for Globetrotter fans. Holders of 21 current world records, the Globetrotters will attempt a new world record during the game, hoping to add to their list of impressive accolades and innovations. The Globetrotters will also celebrate their fans by introducing “The Fifth Quarter,” a free interactive post-game autograph session where fans will have the opportunity to meet the Globetrotters stars up close and personal.

“We are incredibly excited to welcome the Harlem Globetrotters to Allan Hancock College,” said Hancock Athletic Director Kim Ensing. “We want to invite everyone in the community to join us for this one-of-a-kind, family-friendly event.”

As part of the tour, the Globetrotters are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the four-point shot, a shot 30-feet from the basket, which they introduced to the sport in 2010. The team also brought back its popular “Magic Pass” pre-game event, which enables fans to come onto the court, meet their favorite Globetrotters for pictures and autographs, and even learn how to spin a ball on their finger just like the stars.

“The Globetrotters have always been entertainers and innovators, and this season is no exception,” said Head Coach and Globetrotter legend Lou Dunbar. “Our fans have come to expect more than just a great show, and this season delivers more entertainment and excitement than ever before.”

The Harlem Globetrotters roster showcases some of the most thrilling athletes in the world, including Big Easy Lofton, Hi-Lite Bruton, Hammer Harrison, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, and Cheese Chisholm – plus female stars TNT Lister, Torch George and more.
