(ST. JOSEPH) The Harlem Globetrotters made their first appearance in St. Joseph since April of 2012 on Monday night in front of a packed Civic Arena.

The team implemented unique rules during the game as voted on by fans via the Globetrotters website. In their trademark style, they got several fans in on the action during stoppages in the game.

The night was entertaining until the final buzzer as the Globetrotters pulled out a 101-97 win over the World All-Stars.

It marked just one of over 200 nights the team is on the road during the year, meaning they'll quickly be moving on after spending the night in Kansas City.
