Port Chester Faculty to Take on Harlem Wizards

The charity game will feature thundering dunks, alley oops and trick shots while raising money for the middle school's PTA.

How's your science teacher's jump shot?

Port Chester kids will get to see their teachers, coaches and administrators in action Thursday as they take the court bearing the name "PC Pride" for a friendly basketball contest with the Harlem Wizards.

Like the Harlem Globetrotters, the Wizards play a style of basketball that combines theatric athleticism with comedy – basketballs revolving on fingertips, jaw-dropping trick shots and dribbling artistry.

The team was formed in 1962 and travels the country for school programs, special events and charity fund-raisers.

PC Pride will take the court against the Wizards at 7 p.m. at the Port Chester Middle School gym. Teachers and staff have even taken on hoops-themed nicknames for the game – Tsunami Taylor, Air Obuch, Super Fly Santiago, Coney Island Cuglietto and Shaquille O'Swift. 

The game is open to the wider community, and it's – tickets are $10 for kids and seniors, and $15 for adults, with the proceeds benefitting the Port Chester Middle School PTA.

Check back with Port Chester Patch after the game for photos and coverage.
