Harlem Globetrotters Bringing 2018 Tour to SWOSU

12.19.2017

After 91 years of thrilling and exciting crowds of basketball fans all over the world, the Harlem Globetrotters will bring their 2018 “Amazing Feats of Basketball World Tour” to the Pioneer Cellular Event Center on the campus of Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on Sunday, February 4, at 1 p.m.

The Harlem Globetrotters will take their show to a new level this year by celebrating the special blend of basketball and entertainment that has made the team iconic. The team’s upcoming performance will showcase the high-flying, fun, and memory-making moments that the Globetrotters are known for throughout many years.  The dribbling, the dunking, and the shooting—do not forget they led all of basketball in 4-point shots made in 2017—will all be on full display.

The Globetrotters feature the world’s largest collection of elite dunkers, including six players who have competed in the annual College Slam Dunk contest held during the Final Four weekend, a Guinness World Record holder for slam dunks and the 2016 winner of the popular TV show “The Dunk King.”

The highflying dunks do not end with the players, as 2018 will also mark the debut of the “Flying Globies” – an amazing acrobatic trampoline dunk team, which will defy gravity during the game action with their exciting in-air stunts.

The Globetrotters show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment, with all-star Showmen like Big Easy Lofton, Hi-Lite Bruton, Ant Atkinson, and Hammer Harrison, as well as fan favorites Firefly Fisher, Bull Bullard, Thunder Law and Cheese Chisholm. To match the growing popularity of the Globetrotters’ female stars, the team will feature four female players – the largest female roster in team history – including TNT Lister, Ace Jackson, Hoops Green and Torch George.

Additionally, the 2018 tour marks the return of the Globetrotters’ longtime nemesis, the Washington Generals. After a long-standing series that saw the Generals lose over 14,000 times, the team is back from a two-year hiatus to rebuild and refocus around one goal—to beat the Globetrotters.
