SPIDER's Story

Among the Globetrotters’ 2015 rookies is Spider Sharpless, who spent time with the NBA’s Indiana Pacers in summer league action in 2013.  The 6-4 leaper from Plymouth, North Carolina was the Boxtorow Division II National Player of the Year and CIAA Player of the Year his final season at Elizabeth City State University (N.C.). He led the conference in rebounding (8.8 rpg) and was third in scoring (20.5 ppg), while shooting 50.7 percent from the field. Sharpless was the only player in the conference who was in the top 10 in scoring, rebounding, steals and blocked shots. He was a two-time All-CIAA honoree (2012, 2013), and this reverse alley-oop to himself in 2012 earned the #1 spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays.
