Magical night on the court

(Posted Nov. 1, 2018)

The Harlem Wizards show basketball team and the Madison County All Stars faced off Oct. 30 at Madison-Plains High School in an entertaining game full of basketball razzle-dazzle and antics. The All Stars–made up of Madison-Plains teachers and staffers and London Mayor Patrick Closser–gave it their all, but the Wizards–stacked with former college players and some former Harlem Globetrotter showmen–took the win.
