BISMARCK - The Harlem Globetrotters are known for their trick shots and making the crowd go crazy during their games, but did they make history when they recently visited Gov. Doug Burgum in Bismarck?

Buckets Blakes and Beast climbed the 242-foot-high state capitol building to attempt to make the longest and highest 3-point shot in North Dakota history.

As Buckets approached the edge of the capitol to shoot at the hoop positioned on the ground in front of the building, Beast watched in anticipation. Buckets took the shot, which soared through the air and into the hoop.

Now there isn’t a way of telling how many times the Globetrotters attempted the shot, but it’s impressive.

You can see the full video above of them making the shot.

You can see the Harlem Globetrotters in action at 7 p.m. tonight, Thursday, April 20, at Scheels Arena in Fargo; at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 22, at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks; and at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, at the Bismarck Event Center.
