Although you can't see the Harlem Globetrotters in person at the Casper Events Center, they are staying connected with fans through social media.

"The Globetrotters have been around for 94 years and we will continue to be around," said Harlem Globetrotter Handles Franklin.

Due to COVID-19 they had to temporarily suspend their Pushing the Limits Tour.

"For right now they are postponed until we are able to get back out there but of course it is more important for people to be safe than it is for us to be out there trying to play basketball games," said Franklin.

However they are posting educational videos on social media pages.

"We know that millions of children are home from school, millions of people are home from work including us, so it is a way to stay connected to fans first of all but even more importantly we are ambassadors of good will so that doesn't stop because we are home," said Franklin. "So it is important to get that positive message of positivity out there in the air, it is things that kids can do while they are home to better themselves not only with education but making education fun."

They feel like it is important to stay connected with fans during this time.

"Right now we are focusing on things that we can do and that we can control and that is how we will move forward, once we are able to get back out to our fans, we are looking forward to it when we can," said Franklin.
