FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The Harlem Globetrotters plan to entertain a Flint crowd with their usual antics - minus one well-known skit.

The basketball troupe will leave their trademark water bucket behind when they hit the Dort Federal Event Center on Monday evening. Officials say they are dropping the “bucket of water, bucket of confetti” skit out of respect for the city that’s undergoing a public health crisis over lead in its drinking water.

The Globetrotters also will donate 90 tickets to a church. The number corresponds with the team’s 90th year.
