Handles Franklin from the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters team talks about their upcoming show next week -- and a face-off with former UVM star Courtnay Pilypaitis.
March 19 at 2 p.m. former Vermont women's basketball standout Courtnay Pilypaitis joins Franklin at the Winooski YMCA to prepare for upcoming game at Patrick Gym. Fans can see Courtnay take on the Globetrotters Patrick Gym on March 28 at 7 p.m.
During practice, Handles will teach Courtnay many of the world famous ball handling skills that Globetrotters fans know and love. In turn, Courtnay will show off her skills. She was also team MVP on the Canadian national team in the 2012 Summer Olympics.
For the first time ever, during the Globetrotters' 2013 "You Write the Rules" World Tour, your family's smiles will begin before you even get to the show. Fans will decide the rules for the game that could affect the final outcome. This could be anything from playing with two basketballs at once, to getting double the points for each basket made.
