The world-famous Harlem Globetrotters, featuring some of the greatest athletes and entertainers on the planet, will bring their unrivaled family show to the First Niagara Center in Buffalo at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 6, 2015, during the Harlem Globetrotters 2015 "Washington Generals' Revenge Tour."

The Globetrotters will face a great challenge next year, as the infamous Washington Generals are more determined than ever to match the franchise's historic last victory over the Globetrotters nearly a half century ago. It has been five years since the Globetrotters and Generals faced off, as the Generals have been searching far and wide for the best players to retool their roster and have been preparing for one thing: victory over the Globetrotters.

In addition to the highly anticipated matchup on the court, the Globetrotters, known worldwide as the "Ambassadors of Goodwill," will honor a Harlem Globetrotters "Hometown Hero" at each of their 310-plus games in North America. The team is searching for active, wounded or retired members of the military who have made their community proud with their brave service and exemplary character. Fans can nominate a Harlem Globetrotters "Hometown Hero" at harlemglobetrotters.com. The Globetrotters will play a portion of each game with a camouflage basketball as a sign of respect to all who protect U.S. freedom.

With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard, Firefly Fisher and Moose Weekes - plus female stars TNT Maddox, T-Time Brawner and Sweet J Ekworomadu* - the Globetrotters' one-of-a-kind show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment.
