Editor's Note: This press release comes from the Harlem Rockets and Lisa Suttile.
The Great Oak Middle School music department will host some very special guests at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 22, at the Oxford High School gymnasium. The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible showtime basketball skills and family-friendly comedy, will face the Oxford All-Stars in a game benefiting the Great Oak music department.
Having played more than 2,500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets. Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Shawn “The Dribbler” Leggett. Shawn is one of the world’s extraordinary dribblers. Guests will be satiated by the game of Terry “Magician” McKenzie and left awestruck by Angelo “TNT” Gordon.
And since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the Zaniest Showman Of All Time… Tex Barnwell “One Of Show Basketball’s All Time Greats." The “Crowned Prince of Laughs."
