When the Harlem Globetrotters hit the court this weekend at TD Garden, fans will notice something a little different: There’s a woman on the team whose stars have included Meadowlark Lemon, Reece “Goose” Tatum, and Fred “Curly” Neal. TNT Maddox is the first female Globetrotter since 1993 and only the ninth in the team’s 87-year history. Tuesday, TNT, who played her college ball at Temple, got acquainted with Boston by dribbling down the Freedom Trail to the DeFilippo Playground in the North End.
