Harlem Globetrotters 90th Anniversary World Tour

Monday, Feb. 22

by

March Madness has nothing on the madcap antics of the Harlem Globetrotters, now in their 90th year as the clown princes and princesses of basketball. Long before the creation of the NBA, the Globetrotters were considered to be the greatest group of b-ballers on the planet. They performed in Russia during the 1950s, thrilled thousands of American troops in war zones across the globe and performed to an audience of one: Pope Francis in 2015—His Holiness has since been named an honorary Globetrotter.

The Globetrotters take on the Washington Generals (the last time they beat the 'Trotters was 1971) when they hit the hardcourt of CenturyLink Arena, Monday, Feb. 23.
