Wizards vs. Wizards!
By Eugenia Moskowitz
The Harlem Wizards trick basketball team went head to head against the Washingtonville Wizards teachers and staff team on May 8 at the high school gym. Organized by the Round Hill Elementary School PTA, the Harlem Wizards’ physical gags, trick shots, and Keystone Kop capers kept the audience in the packed bleachers laughing and the kids sitting courtside involved in the hilarious hijinx (some of which involved fitting very small feet into very large sneakers). The six extremely tall basketball professionals gave their all against the 20 decidedly shorter (but spirited!) Washingtonville teacher team, carrying the game to a close final score.
