The Harlem Globetrotters have been entertaining crowds for decades. On Sunday, they brought their skills to Duluth.

The Globetrotters tipped off agains the World All Stars, but this isn't your typical basketball game. Fans got to vote on special rules for the contest. In the first quarter, coaches could issue trick shot challenges for the other team, which the Globetrotters performed flawlessly. The second quarter rule change forced the teams to add or remove players from the court depending on whether they made or missed their shots. The team even got some Northland fans in on the action.

Since the team was founded in the late 1920s, the Globetrotters have played more than 20,000 exhibition games.
