One of the most popular and recognizable Harlem Globetrotters ever, Hubert "Geese" Ausbie thrilled audiences with his awesome talent and effervescent personality around the world for 24 years. He served as the "Clown Prince" for the Globetrotters from 1961 to 1985.  In 1961, Ausbie attended the Globetrotters training camp in Chicago, where the competition included more than 500 players from around the country.  He turned down a pro baseball contract with the Chicago Cubs to pursue a career with the Globetrotters.  The former Philander Smith College standout finished his college career as the nation's third leading scorer behind Elgin Baylor and Oscar Robertson.  A native of Crescent, Okla., Ausbie was honored with the Harlem Globetrotters "Legends" Ring on March 6, 1994, during a pregame ceremony at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn.
