Hoover Hosts Harlem Wizards Basketball

The Hoover Middle School PTA presents the Harlem Wizards Basketball Team at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 22 at the Lakewood High School gym.  The trick basketball team will take on the Hoover All-Star team of students, teachers, alumni and parents in a game filled with slam dunks and alley-oops. 

Pre-sale tickets are $8 for students and $10 adults at the Harlem Wizards website or at Hoover Middle School at 421-1213.  Doors open at 1 p.m. for the event.  Proceeds benefit the school.

Russ Widman, 23-year veteran Hoover physical education teacher, is looking forward to playing in the game.

“I love making a fool of myself in front of my co-workers and students,” he said. “I only ask that you laugh with me, not at me!”
