Harlem Globetrotters Visit Wichita Falls

WICHITA FALLS, TX - The Harlem Globetrotters are a team full of good basketball players.
Really good basketball players. 
On the court they can make about anyone look silly.
The Globetrotters were in Wichita Falls tonight at Kay Yeager Coliseum Monday night and put on a show for the locals. 
But there is more to this tight knit group than trick shots and laughs.
     "Being a Globetrotter is not just about being a great basketball player and a great entertainer," Globetrotter Buckets Blakes said. "It's about being a great person all the way through. Your trying your best to make people laugh and smile each and every night all over the world."
Part of how the Globetrotters do this is through their numerous community outreach programs, including the ABC's of bully prevention. 
The Globetrotters will always be known for the half court shots and highlight dunks.
But when putting the group together, they will always look for more than just talent. 
     "They're looking for great basketball players and they're looking for a certain character that has some showmanship involved because they visit so many schools and we do so many hospital visits and a lot of Community Centers," Blakes said.
In honor of it being the 90th Anniversary, the Globetrotters wore their all white uniforms.
They also honored former Globetrotters who have passed away.
