Harlem Globetrotters land in Ingleburn

Ingleburn Public School received a visit from basketball royalty this afternoon.

The Harlem Globetrotters dropped in to take a select group of students through a skills session.

The duo of Scott ‘Scooter’ Christensen and Corey ‘Thunder’ Law arrived a little late but spent what brief time they had entertaining the screaming crowd of youngsters.

They showed them how to pass the ball between the legs and behind the back and whipped the crowd into a frenzy.

Sydney Kings players Todd Blanchfield, Tom Garlepp and Perry Ellis were also on hand to play a game with students from the school’s basketball teams.

Ellis was a big hit, at one stage lifting a youngster up towards the net to help her make a shot.

Ellis also stayed and mixed with the crowd, signing autographs for the many adoring fans.
