Last week, 35 SOTX athletes from the Greater Dallas Area were invited to American Airlines Center for an exciting experience, held by the Harlem Globetrotters ahead of their games this past weekend in downtown Arlington.

Harlem Globetrotters players Anthony "Buckets” Blakes and "TNT Maddox” (female player in pictures) talked to the athletes, did some trick moves, signed autographs and took pictures

They talked to the SOTX athletes about ongoing community campaigns, including the "ABCs of Bullying Prevention" and the S.P.I.N. (Some Playtime is Necessary) programs. 

Check out the photos! 

The Harlem Globetrotters are schedule to play in College Station, Wichita Falls, Lubbock, Abilene and Amarillo during the month of February. Check out the full schedule.
