MARGATE, N.J. (AP) — The Harlem Globetrotters needed someone to beat up on, and Red Klotz supplied them.

The basketball barnstormer who owned the Washington Generals and other teams that lost thousands of games to the Harlem Globetrotters has died at age 93.

Klotz formed a working relationship with the Globetrotters in 1952, putting together the opposing teams that almost always lost. In 1971, he hit the game-winner in a rare Globetrotter loss as a 50-year-old player/coach.
