The Lockwood family arrived to Hartford's XL Center on Saturday afternoon to see The Harlem Globetrotters do what they do best: entertain audiences across the globe with basketball tricks and contagious humor.
However, the Lockwoods weren't your average family attending the game. They won the Ticket Galaxy #GalaxysStars Experience for the Globetrotters. This VIP-level Experience included Magic Passes to play on the XL Court and meet the players before the show, the Game Ball Presentation, and free VIP seats near all of the action.
Sandra Lockwood entered into the contest and won for her family. Her husband John Lockwood, son Brayden Lockwood, and his two friends joined Ticket Galaxy on Saturday. Brayden is a basketball player himself, watching games from the Globetrotters to the Hartford Hawks to the UCONN Huskies. His friends in attendance have played on the same AAU team as him for the past two years, and each of them holds a deep relationship with the sport.
"I just wanted to thank you so much for making this Experience even more special for the boys!" said Sandra Lockwood.
Before the game began, the Magic Pass portion allowed the Lockwoods to meet some of the Globetrotters including learning basketball tricks and shooting on the court.

Taylor Swift "reputation World Tour"
"Big reputation, big reputation..." ooooooh Taylor Swift has built a big reputation. Her first album in three years, 'reputation' exorcised many conflicting themes of a twentysomething woman. The album discusses hurt and disagreeing emotions regarding her public feuds, a disregard for her negative media portrayal, but most importantly, a self-reflective journey about her relationships. Once careless and jaded, Swift's current boyfriend made her believe in love again, and so she fell. 'reputation' has its nasty edges and coming-of-age mentality regarding her most bitter rivals. However, amongst the disarray, love still wins.
Swift is embarking on her "reputation World Tour" starting in May. The tour will head through the summer, as Swift will once again sell out multiple nights at the biggest stadiums in the country. Purchase Taylor Swift tickets at Ticket Galaxy to see the megastar live.
Ed Sheeran 2018 Stadium Tour
Ed Sheeran toured for the second half of 2017, hitting many major indoor arenas across the country. He is back in 2018 to perform at stadiums in support of his 2017 album ÷.
Stars on Ice
Stars on Ice is the ice show to see in 2018 following the 2018 Winter Olympics. Ice skating stars all around the country will participate in the 2018 tour including Olympics medalists and major faces in the ice skating realm.

Houston Cougars vs. SMU Presented by Ticket Galaxy: Ticket Galaxy Partners with Boys & Girls Club Houston
Thursday night's Houston Cougars men's basketball home game was presented by Ticket Galaxy. Playing in-conference team SMU, the Cougars won 67-58. This makes the Cougars 11-0 at home and 18-5 this season.
However, the true highlight of the evening was in conjunction with the Houston community. Ticket Galaxy joined forces with Boys & Girls Club Houston to donate 30 tickets to the organization. In addition, Club Leader Carla Jones-Adams presented the game ball to Houston Athletic Director Chris Pezman.
Ticket Galaxy decided to collaborate with the Boys & Girls Club Houston because the company wanted to give back to a strong community that has been through so much over the past year. The Boys & Girls Club is an organization focused on the future generations, fostering safe and fun environments for children through after-school programs and more. A Cougars basketball game was a perfect fit as an outing for the members.
Congratulations on the Cougars' win, and thanks to everyone who made the night a success!
