Globetrotters to play at Show Me Center

Tuesday, January 3, 2006

There is not much in doubt about the outcome of tonight's basketball game at the Show Me Center.

When the Harlem Globetrotters are involved, they usually win.

The Globetrotters take on the New York Nationals, with tip-off set for 7 p.m.

Tickets are available at the box office.

The stop is part of the Unstoppable tour that began Dec. 26 in Pittsburgh and Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The tour, which marks the Globetrotters' 80th consecutive season, will include 228 games in 197 cities and ends in April.

"Unstoppable represents both the energy and commitment of the players to give the fans something special," said owner and CEO Mannie Jackson, who according to his biography on the Globetrotters' Web site was born in a railway boxcar in Illmo.

The players will be available for a meet and greet session after the game.
