Indiana Fever star guard Shavonte Zellous will have some fun when the Harlem Globetrotters come to Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m., as she will play as a guest member of the Washington Generals, trying to help the infamous Generals achieve a long-awaited victory.
It has been five years since the Globetrotters and Generals have faced off, as the Generals have been retooling their roster. The 5-10 Zellous – a member of the Fever’s 2012 WNBA championship team and the sixth-leading scorer in Fever history – will try to help the Globetrotters’ long-time rivals to the franchise’s first victory over the Globetrotters since 1971.
Tickets to the Jan. 19 game start at $23 and are available at harlemglobetrotters.com, tickemaster.com, the Bankers Life Fieldhouse box office, or by phone at 800-745-3000. Information on group, military and scout tickets can also be found at harlemglobetrotters.com.
The Fever will donate 50 tickets to the game to local charities.
