The Harlem Globetrotters Visit Winchester
The Harlem Globetrotters visited Winchester yesterday.
The Atlanta-based, internationally famous basketball team played for a crowd of 2,000 fans inside a sold-out James. R. Wilkins Jr. Athletics and Events Center at Shenandoah University. The game marked the first professional event that the Wilkins Center, which opened in late January of this year, has ever hosted. The Globetrotters are made up of 33 players that separate into three teams; as Coach “Sweet” Lou Dunbar guided one of the Globetrotters’ three teams through last night’s festivities, the two others were performing in Idaho and Oregon. Shane “Scooter” Christensen, who has played with the Globetrotters before, was quoted as saying that he’s “done a couple of openings for buildings before,” and that he understood “the fans [were] going to be excited to see the building, and they [got] a little treat with seeing the Harlem Globetrotters at the same time.”
