It's A Slam Dunk 

Brace yourself, because tonight the Harlem Globetrotters dribble back into St. Louis to the tune of "Sweet Georgia Brown" and are all but guaranteed to run circles around the competition. The team recently made headlines for some phenomenal rookie signings, including the world's tallest pro, Paul "Tiny" Sturgess, who towers over his rivals at a full seven feet, eight inches tall. At the other end of the court, standing at a mere five feet, two inches, is Jonte "Too Tall" Hall, the shortest Globetrotter in the team's storied history and a former Washington General. Though players vary from city to city and are subject to change, reality TV fans might want to keep an eye out for former Amazing Race contestants "Flight Time" Lang and "Big Easy" Lofton, who are both on the active roster. The fun begins at 7 p.m. at the Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-241-1888 or and tickets run from $17 to $133.
