Harlem Globetrotters hoop it up in Nanaimo

Hall-of-fame basketball team entertains crowd at sold-out VIU gym

The Harlem Globetrotters were able to keep their lengthy winning streak going in Nanaimo.

The hall-of-fame basketball team defeated the Washington Generals on Sunday afternoon at a sold-out Vancouver Island University gymnasium.

Spectators were treated to a circus passing, acrobatic slam dunks and plenty of shenanigans. Kris (Hi-Lite) Bruton hounded the referee, Craig (Hi-Rise) Hinton delivered ferocious dunks and Brittany (Ice) Hrynko dribbled circles around hapless Generals opponents. Even 4-foot-5 Jahmani (Hot Shot) Swanson went way up for a dunk after getting a boost from a couple of teammates.

Nanaimo was the final stop of a two-week tour in Canada for the Globetrotters.
