Barton’s Atkinson and Globetrotter Teammates in “Sports Illustrated”

Former Barton College basketball All-American Anthony “Ant” Atkinson and his Harlem Globetrotter teammates are featured in a seven-page article in the March 30 issue of Sports Illustrated.

Atkinson, who led Barton College to the 2007 NCAA D-II National Championship exactly two years ago, has already had his status elevated to the “Magic Circle” with the Globetrotters, and he recently performed with the team in Raleigh’s RBC Center during their North American Tour.

Atkinson is featured in many of the photos in SI and is interviewed as well. Copies should be available at your local newstands this week. A video interview about the Globetrotters can also be found on the official Harlem Globetrotters web site at
