Last year at this time, Joyce Ekworomadu was finishing up her first year coaching softball at Grand Prairie High School.
The former Coppell and Texas State basketball standout was settling into life after pro hoops when a conversation with a friend led to one more basketball tryout.
Ekworomadu goes by “Sweet J” now after completing her first season as a shooting guard for the Harlem Globetrotters.
The Trotters are another addition on Ekworomadu’s résumé, which includes a season with the WNBA’s San Anotonio Silver Stars as well as professional teams in Poland and Italy.
She and teammate Cheese Chisholm held the first of three daily basketball camps at 24-Hour Fitness in Fort Worth on Sunday. The camps run through Tuesday.
