Before bringing their 2011 World Tour to Trenton next March, the iconic Harlem Globetrotters will go back to the classroom, as players compete for charity during a special celebrity week of “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?” the Emmy-nominated syndicated television game show hosted by renowned comedian Jeff Foxworthy.
Globetrotters star Dizzy Grant from Princeton, N.J., and his teammates Special K Daley, Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang and Ant Atkinson and will have fun with the kids and put their brain power to the test — with all of their winnings being donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America.
The Globetrotters have worked with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for years to make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Sept. 27 – Big Easy Lofton
Sept. 28 – Ant Atkinson
Sept. 29 – Special K Daley
Sept. 30 – Dizzy Grant
