Trenton, New Jersey — The Harlem Globetrotters continued their World Tour last night.

The Globetrotters played a two-game set with the Washington Generals at the Sun National Bank Center. The Globetrotters swept both games, but it’s unknown what the score of the first game was.

In the second game, the Globetrotters won 139-120. The Globetrotters never trailed throughout the game.

The Globetrotters led by 14 points at the end of the third quarter when the score was 108-94. The Washington Generals, who haven’t beat the Globetrotters since 1971, got within 3-points right before halftime.

At that time, the Globetrotters were down 3 men, as they were in the penalty box. The Generals were playing with a 3-man advantage, before the Globetrotters made a 4-point basket, a 35-foot basket, to increase their lead.

The Lakewood BlueClaws, a Philadelphia Phillies Single-A team, had its junior cheerleader perform at halftime. The Philadelphia Soul, an Arena Football team, had its Junior Soul Mates perform at halftime, as well.

At halftime, the Globetrotters led 70-63. The Globetrotters were up by 16 points after the first quarter, when they had a 37-21 lead.

Prior to the game, the Washington Generals head coach was talking badly about the City of Trenton. He was booed for his comments.

Nate “Big East” Loftin was the main speaker for the Globetrotters throughout the show. Big Easy and fellow Globetrotter Herbert “Flight Time” Lang appear on the current Amazing Race show that airs every Sunday on CBS at 8 pm eastern. This duo finished in the top four of the Amazing Race 15.

This current group of Globetrotters will be performing two shows at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia today. The shows are at 1 pm and 6 pm.

The Globetrotters that performed in the Sun National Bank Center show were Big Easy Loftin, Anthony “Buckets” Blakes, William “Bull” Bullard, Tay “Firefly” Fisher, Eric “Hackshaw” Hall, Jermaine “Hi Rise” Brown, Donte “Hammer” Harrison, Shane “Scooter” Christensen, “Slick” Willie Shaw, and Kirk “Zeus” Stewart.
