The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to town! They will be at EMU’s Convocation Center for one game on Friday, January 20. I am so excited to see them in person again. I first saw the Harlem Globetrotters over 30 years ago. Even the second time I saw them was more than 25 years ago. I wanted to take my daughter to see them last year, but she was out of town the weekend of their show.

HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS BRING NEW TOUR TO YPSILANTI ON FRIDAY, JAN. 20 ON THE HEELS OF SETTING NINE GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ RECORDS

Tickets are on sale now to see Globetrotters at EMU Convocation Center

(ATLANTA, Nov. 17, 2016) – As the Harlem Globetrotters prepare to bring their 2017 World Tour to the EMU Convocation Center in Ypsilanti on Friday, Jan. 20, at 7 p.m., the iconic team took a timeout for Guinness World Records Day.  Only one year after setting seven official Guinness World Records titles, the Globetrotters broke a single-day total of nine records this year, including the longest basketball hook-shot.

Tickets to the see the Globetrotters in Ypsilanti start at $20.00 and are officially on sale now at harlemglobetrotters.com or the EMU Convocation Center ticket office. 

The records were broken at the AT&T Center, home of the San Antonio Spurs, during the 12th annual Guinness World Records Day, a global celebration of record breaking launched to celebrate the day the Guinness World Records book sold its 100 millionth copy.  Since 2000, the Globetrotters now own 15 current Guinness World Records.

“We are the original trick shot artists, so it is great to reclaim our records and reestablish our dominance,” said Harlem Globetrotters star Big Easy Lofton.  “We have been training hard so to have a day where we push the limits and try some fun yet challenging shots, is pretty cool. I mean, how many people can say they’re a Guinness World Records title holder? We can’t wait to put smiles on people’s faces as we demonstrate our skills and talents on the upcoming world tour.”

Among the nine Guinness World Records titles which were set by the Globetrotters, four of them reclaimed records that were originally held by the team and then broken by Dude Perfect. The Globetrotters reclaimed the records of longest basketball hook shot, longest basketball shot blindfolded, most basketball 3-pointers made by a pair in one minute, and longest blindfolded basketball hook shot.

Here’s a full look at the records set by the Globetrotters:

  • Longest basketball hook shot – Big Easy Lofton (72 feet, 6.25 inches)
  • Longest basketball shot blindfolded – Ant Atkinson (73 feet, 10 inches)
  • Most basketball 3-pointers in one minute (single ball) – Ant Atkinson and Cheese Chisholm (10 each)
  • Farthest basketball shot made while sitting on the court – Thunder Law (58 feet, 9.25 inches)
  • Most bounced basketball 3-pointers in one minute – Zeus McClurkin (5)
  • Most basketball 3-pointers made by a pair in one minute – Ant Atkinson and Cheese Chisholm (22 each)
  • Farthest basketball shot under-one-leg – Thunder Law (52 feet, 5.5 inches)
  • Longest blindfolded basketball hook shot – Big Easy Lofton (58 feet, 2.5 inches)
  • Most basketball slam dunks in one minute (individual) – Zeus McClurkin (16)

The Globetrotters will tip off their 2017 World Tour on Dec. 26 and will play in over 250 North American markets as well as 30 countries worldwide. Tickets are now available at harlemglobetrotters.com.
