The Harlem Globetrotters

You can start a new Thanksgiving tradition with your family by adding a spoonful of basketball to your holiday plans. After you stuff yourself with turkey and dressing, check out a weekend full of hoops action at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World.

Some of the nation’s most well-known collegiate basketball teams are competing in the Old Spice Classic, one of the top preseason tournaments in the country, on Thursday, Friday and Sunday at the complex’s HP Field House. We’re talking about Notre Dame, Boston College, Cal, Georgia, Temple, Texas A&M, Wisconsin and Manhattan in nationally-televised games.

It’s easy to get tickets which are on sale at or at the sports complex’s box office. You can find game times for the Classic at and Globetrotters information at For updates on all of the Old Spice Classic action, follow us @DisneySports.
