Globetrotters draft slam dunk champ Justice

(WMC-TV) - College basketball slam dunk champion James Justice will take his high flying act on tour with the greatest show in hoops -- the Harlem Globetrotters.

The Globetrotters drafted the Memphis native out of Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, Tn.

The 5-foot-9 Justice graduated from Craigmont High School before beginning his collegiate career at Southwest Tennessee Community College.

Justice was voted in to the college slam dunk contest as the "dark horse dunker," going from under-the-radar to top dunker in the college ranks.

Sweet Lou Dunbar, the Globetrotters' director of player personnel, said in a news release that Justice is a "dunking dynamo."
