COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Basketball lovers across the Chattahoochee Valley got the chance to watch the world famous Harlem Globetrotters put on a show Wednesday night at the Columbus Civic Center during their "Fans Rule" tour.

For the second year in a row, fans got the chance to vote on rules that will impact the games. The games included Hot Hand Jersey, Make or Miss, and Trick Shot Challenge.

The Globetrotters first included this interactive feature to their shows in 2012.

One lucky WTVM viewer also got the chance to be a Junior Globetrotter for the night!

Tamara Morgan got to sit on the bench with the team for the entire game, while her family watched from the stands.

Tamara was able to do this because her grandmother Lynn Smith went online and entered our Junior Globetrotter contest by answering trivia questions.

"I went to see the Harlem Globetrotters when Meadowlark Lemon was with them," Lynn said. "So I knew how much fun it would be for them. Wow, I can't wait!"

Tamara also got to interview a player and got an autographed basketball.
