Globetrotters cancel college tour after ruling
PHOENIX -- The Harlem Globetrotters canceled their fall college tour following an NCAA decision barring schools from scheduling exhibition games against non-collegiate opponents.
The Globetrotters had agreed to play seven games in November against Cincinnati, Illinois, Louisville, Michigan, Oklahoma, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi and NCAA champion Connecticut.
All seven schools appealed the NCAA ruling and were denied exemptions.
