The Harlem Globetrotters’ 2018 Amazing Feats of Basketball World Tour is making stops in Charleston and Huntington next week. The team will be at the Civic Center Tuesday, March 6 at 7p.m. and the Big Sandy Superstore Arena on Wednesday, March 7 at 7p.m.
The team’s first and only Puerto Rican born player, El Gato Melendez is touring the state this week in anticipation for the upcoming game. Melendez has been to over 70 countries with the team but says he can’t pick a favorite place.
“Everyday and every city something fun happens that makes it my favorite.
I think because of the interaction of the crowd and having everyone involved from
parents, to couples, to kids,” said Melendez.
