BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Harlem Globetrotter is marking his arrival in Maine by dribbling a basketball over the Penobscot River into Bangor.
Jet Williams plans to dribble and spin a basketball Monday morning while crossing the Penobscot Bridge from Brewer to Bangor. He'll end up at All Saints Catholic School, where students will host a pep rally and hear Williams talk about bullying prevention.
Williams' arrival signals the start of what's being dubbed "Globetrotter Week," which includes multiple bullying-prevention school assemblies and culminates with the grand opening of the new Cross Insurance Center on Friday. The Globetrotters play games Friday and Saturday for what will be the first ticketed events at the new arena.
