Harlem Globetrotters offer basketball on ice

PORTAGE, Mich. (AP) — The Harlem Globetrotters say they hope that deprived NHL fans will take some comfort in watching basketball on ice.

The sporty entertainers are strapping on custom cleats and hockey helmets for a basketball game on ice Monday against the Global Select. It's at Millennium Park in the western Michigan city of Portage, near Kalamazoo.

Admission to the noon game is free. The Globetrotters play on a conventional court the next day at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo.

The Globetrotters say Detroit Red Wings alumnus Kevin Miller will join the team for the game on ice.

The NHL Players Association and the league reached a tentative settlement early Sunday to end the NHL lockout after a marathon bargaining session.

Fans are awaiting details on when NHL games will resume.
