SAN DIEGO — The Harlem Globetrotters, featuring their first woman player, Lynette Woodard, will perform at 8 tonight in the Sports Arena.
Woodard was chosen from a field of 18 women who were selected to try out for the Globetrotters. She scored 3,649 points during her four years at the University of Kansas and was captain of the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic women's basketball team.
In their 60th year, the Globetrotters have played more than 16,000 games in more than 1,600 North American cities and 101 foreign countries. Tonight, they play their traditional opponents, the Washington Generals.
The March of Dimes' Super Run V, a fund-raiser for local March of Dimes programs, will start at 8 Sunday morning at La Jolla Village Square. Registration, on the day of the race, is set for 6:30.
