Ex-Ga Tech Player Drafted by Globetrotters

ATLANTA (AP) _ The Harlem Globetrotters' adopted theme song
``Sweet Georgia Brown'' would be a nice fit if Georgia Tech's Mario
West is successful in his tryout with the team.
The 6-foot-5 West was one of five players taken by the
Globetrotters in their first player draft that the team announced
today. West will try out for the team in the fall.
The Harlem Globetrotters also drafted Anthony Atkinson of Barton
College, 7-foot-9 Sun Ming Ming of China, Brent Petway of the
University of Michigan, and Montevallo's Marcus Kennedy.
West, Tech's captain in the 2006-07 season, won the slam dunk
competition at the Final Four, edging Petway in the final round.
West is from Douglasville. He started only four games for the
Yellow Jackets as a senior, averaging four-point-seven points per
game.
West will try to join the Globetrotters on their 82nd season.
The team has traveled to 118 nations since 1926.
