The Harlem Wizards delighted a huge crowd at Mattituck High School last night with their legendary “tricks, hoops and alley-oops.”

The name of the game was audience participation and high-flying antics which had the crowd roaring and cheering.

Freshman Shelby Dufton led off the event with a spectacular rendition of the national anthem and for the next two hours it was all about having fun.

The Wizards faced the Mattituck coaches and faculty, played games with both kids and adults from the audience and had a quick match against Greenport’s Blvd Boyz basketball team.

The event is a fundraiser for the Mattituck Booster Club and was supported by Kait’s Angels.
