The Harlem Wizards, who played an exhibition game against the Big Walnut All-Stars last year, will return to Big Walnut High School on Wednesday, March 2, for a rematch, thanks to the efforts of the Sunbury-Galena Rotary Club.
The Big Walnut All-Stars said they are anxious to get some court time in with the Harlem Wizards. They said it’s payback time for the 75-69 loss at the hands of the Wizards during last year’s game.
“The Wizards have a new routine this year, so it will be a fun evening even for fans that attended last year’s game,” said Rotary member Jim Irwin said. “And best of all, most of the money raised during the Wizards/Big Walnut All-Star game will stay here in our community.”
Irwin said tickets are $10 and $12 if purchased before the event; the night of the event all tickets are $15.
Tickets are available at the Big Walnut High athletic director’s office and at Subway of Sunbury, 747 W. Cherry St.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the game starts at 6:30.
