The Harlem Globetrotters On Tour In Syracuse

Community

Mixing entertainment with skills on the court, The Harlem Globetrotters are coming to the Oncenter War Memorial. Hoops Green is one of 15 women who have been part of the group. “It’s a lot of fun. I grew up playing with and against guys. Playing basketball my entire life, I was comfortable playing with them,” says Green. “I just try to hold it down for the ladies and represent a little girl power.”

When she was 6 years old, Green went to her first Harlem Globetrotters game. She was thrilled with the experience. She always dreamed of traveling and playing professional basketball.

Hoops Green started her journey with the Harlem Globetrotters three years ago. She was playing professional basketball, but had to sit on the bench because of knee surgery. She was discovered by a Harlem Globetrotter recruiter through a Facebook video of her dribbling with a knee brace. She was invited to try out for the team and made it.

You can see Hoops Green and the Harlem Globetrotters on their Fan-Powered World Tour at the Oncenter War Memorial Arena Saturday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 10 at 2:00 p.m. For tickets and information visit HarlemGlobetrotters.com
