Posted: Updated:

The legendary Harlem Globetrotters will return to Louisville in January for their 2013 World Tour. This one-of-a-kind production visits Louisville Sunday, January 20, 2013 for two games at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. But Handles Franklin and female player TNT Maddox stopped by WDRB in the Morning to take on anchors Candyce Clifft and Sterling Riggs.

The Harlem Globetrotters have become a household name since their start in 1926. The 2013 Tour will mark the first time female Globetrotters are part of the roster: T-Time Brawner and Mighty Mitchell join the team along with the likes of famous male teammates Buckets, Bones and Cheese and many more.

For the first time ever, fans will decide 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: Click here to learn more.

The Globetrotters are also on a tour-long campaign to promote breast cancer awareness, playing parts of each game with pink basketballs and selling special pink Globetrotter wristbands to champion the cause.
