Eugene Edgerson (born February 10, 1978 in New Orleans, Louisiana [2]) is an American basketball player who used to play for the Harlem Globetrotters. As is tradition with the Globetrotters, Edgerson has a nickname: "Wildkat", presumably in honor of his alma mater, the University of Arizona.

Edgerson spent 1996-2001 as a member of the Arizona Wildcats men's basketball team. He played on a pair of Final Four teams (1997, 2001) with the Wildcats and was a member of the UA 1997 National Championship squad. He is a member of Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.[citation needed] He appeared as a Globetrotter on the ESPN2 program Cold Pizza on 1 March 2007.[citation needed]

During his career at Arizona, Edgerson took a one-year hiatus from competitive basketball to fulfill student-teaching duties at a Tucson kindergarten.[1] He was a detention officer and joined the police. [2]
