The Harlem Globetrotters are returning to the ShoWare Center in Kent for the fourth consecutive year.

The Globetrotters will bring their mix of basketball, comedy, theater and plenty of fan interaction at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 to the arena. The team is in its 86th season.

Tickets went on sale Oct. 17 for the 2012 World Tour.

Players expected to perform include Big Easy Lofton, Flight Time Lang, Special K, Scooter Christensen and others. The rookies on the squad include TNT Maddox, the first female on the team since 1993 and the ninth female member overall; Tiny Sturgess, the world's tallest pro player at 7 feet 8 inches; and Hops Tucker, a YouTube dunking sensation who is 5-10 with a 50-inch vertical jump.

Rosters in each city vary and are subject to change.

Ticket prices are $87, $62, $55, $37, $27 and $23. Last year's performance sold out.

For tickets, go to www.showarecenter.com or visit the arena box office from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
