Fans have a chance to decide on possible rules changes they'd like to see implemented when the Harlem Globetrotters appear Jan. 14 at Santa Rosa Junior College's Haehl Pavilion.

Voting can be done by visiting the website www.harlemglobetrotters.com/rule. The candidates are:

Hot Hand Jersey: Both teams can pass this jersey among their players, and the one who is wearing it will receive double points on made baskets.

Make or Miss: Each quarter begins with only two players on the court for each team. When a team scores, a teammate may enter the game. When they miss, the player missing the shot must leave the court, leaving his or her teammates shorthanded.

Trick Shot Challenge: Coaches can challenge the other team to make a trick shot. If the team makes the trick shot, it earns five points. If they miss, the other team receives five points.

Tickets for the appearance are available at the SRJC box office of online.
