harlem wizMADISONVILLE, Ky. (4/9/13) – For over 50 years, the Harlem Wizards have been wowing audiences with their amazing athleticism, tricks, teamwork, crazy dunks and their hilarious comedic acts.
 
“The Harlem Wizards have been in existence for over 50 years. We started back in 1962, when our founder Howard Davis and our current owner Todd Davis (Howard’s son) decided that they wanted to create an awe-inspiring basketball experience for all. What we do, is go to communities all around the world and play against different teachers, counselors, fire fighters, police officers or anyone that wants to play,” expressed Leon Sewell, A.K.A. Space Jam from the Harlem Wizards.
 
The Harlem Wizards currently hold the longest winning streak in all professional sports. Holding the record at 2,800 games, the players are committed to touching their fans and providing them with an experience they will always remember. But will their streak last forever? Well you can find out on May 11, 2013 at 6:00pm at Hopkins County Central High School, where the South Hopkins Fire Department, Hopkins County Schools and Youth Service Centers will be teaming up for this event. Featuring staff from Hopkins County High, North Hopkins High, Browning Springs Middle, West Hopkins, Jesse Stuart, Grapevine, Southside Elementary, James Madison Middle, and South Hopkins Middle. Tickets are on sale now, $10.00 in advance, $12.00 at the door. Refreshments and souvenirs will be sold at the game. There will also be a free autograph session following the game.
 
“I love being able to go to new cities and meet new people all the time but mainly I love being able to give back to the communities and helping out with whatever they may be doing,” stated Sewell.
