The Harlem Globetrotters are back!  The world’s most famous basketball team returns to Samford University Tuesday, March 20, at the Pete Hanna Center.

The Globetrotters combine athleticism, theatre, and comedy on the basketball court for a night of family fun.  New to the Globetrotters in 2012 is Jacob “Hops” Tucker.   This former college stand-out has a 50” vertical leap, which helped him win the 2011 College Slam Dunk Contest.      

Tickets for the 7 p.m. event can be found at Harlem Globetrotter Tickets.

New ticket options this year for the event include the VIP Courtside Plus Package.  It includes an East End Zone courtside seat, a Magic Pass pre-show ticket and an exclusive autograph and photo session with the Harlem Globetrotters. 

You can just about hear “Sweet Georgia Brown”, the Globetrotter’s signature song, right now!
