Harlem Globetrotters Bring The Show to T-Mobile Arena
April 19, 2016
LAS VEGAS -- The Harlem Globetrotters brought their 90th anniversary tour to the T-Mobile Arena on Tuesday, April 19, dazzling another generation of fans with their talent for trick shots, ball handling skills, and high jinks on and around the court. It was a hometown appearance for one of the Globetrotters' premier ball-handlers, Shane " Scooter" Christensen, a Bishop Gorman High School grad. After winning a state championship and team MVP honors with Bishop Gorman, Scooter went on to play at the University of Montana, leading the Grizzlies to the NCAA tournament in 2002. He is one of only three players in school history to lead the team in assists three straight seasons, and he is still second on the school’s all-time assist list. Scooter needed no assistance on Nov. 12, 2015, when he shattered the Guinness World Records® record for the longest duration spinning a basketball on the nose: 7.7 seconds, obliterating the old mark of 5.2 seconds.
