Today Kristi & I were lucky enough to talk to a current Harlem Globetrotter, Scooter Christensen.

He stopped by the B98.5 Studios to talk a bit about the history of the famed team, and also to help Kristi out with her ball spinning technique.

Scooter talked about how the Globetrotters continue to bring their entertainment basketball to millions of fans around the world and have more than 400 live events each year. One of those events is coming up right here in Augusta, at the Augusta Civic Center, February 8th. Tickets are on sale now at the civic center box office or at, and you never know when we may just set you up with some free tickets too, so keep it locked to B98.5
