Entering their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add a new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet further than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.
The music factory of PHAT Entertainment marks its 10-year anniversary by thumping and bumping downtown Tucson with a two-day celebration of elephantine beats and contagious dance music. More than 30 performers fill two kaleidoscopic stages and one seemingly boundless clown car. The first day of PHATFest takes over the Hotel Congress, infusing both the outside stage and Club Congress’ innards with a pulsating soundtrack. Friday night's line-up features a dozen specialists in electronic euphoria, including the Arizona debut of mixologist duo Run DMT, licensed knob-twiddler DJ mLe, and the first Tucson appearance of Parisian bass-blasters Dirtyphonics, who have played some of the biggest festivals and most intimate PTA meetings in the world.
Over the years, the University of Arizona’s athletic teams have been linked together by one phrase: “bear down.” Now the official battle cry of the Wildcats, those were the dying words of an iconic student-athlete, John “Button” Salmon, who died in 1926 after a fatal car accident. Since then, the phrase has stood behind countless milestone moments, such as when Lute Olson, in 1983, became the 11th head coach of the Wildcats men’s basketball team, setting off a string of 25 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances—including a national title in 1997. Several other national titles belong to Arizona outside of the hardwood, including four from the men’s baseball team and eight from the women’s softball program. Every fall inside Arizona Stadium, the Wildcats football team rouses up to 56,000 fans with hard-hitting Pac-12 showdowns, by far the most popular event on campus behind the linguistics department’s weekly phonetics bee.
