Coe-Brown Northwood Academy will be hosting some very special guests on Friday, November 17, at 6:30 pm at Smith Hall on the CBNA Campus, Northwood, NH. The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible show time basketball skills and family-friendly comedy will face the CBNA Faculty All-Stars in a game benefiting the CBNA boys and girls basketball programs,
Having played over 2500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets. Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the ball-handling wizardry of Kaseem “The Ankle Breaker” Williams, one of the world’s extraordinary street-ball dribblers. Audiences will also be intrigued by the game of Junie “King of the Battleground Champion” Sanders and left awestruck by high-flying dunks of Anthony “Amazing” Gordon and Angelo “TNT” Gordon, and since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets will present the Zaniest Showman of All Time……. Tex Barnwell “One of Show Basketball’s All Time Greats”, the “Crown Prince of Laughs”. The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.
