WINTER GARDEN — The Harlem Wizards came to town on the evening of May 15, putting on quite a show for the fans in attendance at West Orange High School.
The Wizards, a world-famous traveling basketball team, took on the "West Side Slammers" — a team comprised of teachers from Sunset Park Elementary, Windermere Elementary, Sand Lake Elementary, Bridgewater Middle School and West Orange High School. Proceeds from the event benefitted the Sunset Park PTO and the Lions' Pride Foundation at Glenridge Middle School.
The night included basketball tricks and slam dunks, but the fun didn't stop there. The Wizards kept the crowd engaged and brought several spectators into the show. Music and dancing went on throughout. Photos were taken and autographs were available for all the youngsters in attendance.
Despite a valiant effort from the Slammers, the Wizards came away with the 82-74 victory.
