Famous for their hilarious antics and gravity-defying stunts (and perhaps their catchy theme tune), the Harlem Globetrotters continue to barnstorm the world with their own brand of acrobatic comedy/basketball. The current outing is the Fans Rule World Tour, which implements three new rules voted into the game by, you guessed it, the fans themselves. Players earn double points for scoring while wearing the special Hot Hand Jersey, five points are gained or given to the other team for making or missing a trick shot, and teams gain an extra player for sinking a basket but lose one player when they miss. Catch the action at 7 p.m. tonight at Scottrade Center (1401 Clark Avenue; 314-622-5435 or www.scottradecenter.com). Tickets are $21 to $138.
