On Sunday, January 29th the Harlem Wizards were at the Churchill Junior High School gymnasium for a special event sponsored by the East Brunswick Education Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the game and merchandise sold goes back to the Foundation to be used to enrich and enhance the curriculum of East Brunswick Schools. The event was a great success and fun was had by all.
Below is the full Teacher Player list. All of the HMS, CJHS and EBHS player team members are exceptional basketball players who formed an Elite squad. They took the court for the last 8 minutes of the game. They thought they might be able to SCHOOL the Wizards!
