Teaneck, NJ (August 24, 2005) —On Saturday, September 10, fans of all ages will be treated to an evening of basketball wizardry when the Harlem Wizards play a Fairleigh Dickinson University team comprised of University alumni, intramural champions, faculty and staff.

The Harlem Wizards offer their audience a team of outstanding athletes/basketball players in a complete package of excitement, laughter and community wrapped up in a high-flying slam-dunk.

For more than four decades, this team has been thrilling fans around the world with their exciting band of “show” basketball. They have played more than 5,000 games in both the United States and abroad. The Wizards also participate in a variety of high profile charity events.

Founded by promoter Howie Davis in 1962, what began as booking local performances for ex-Harlem Globetrotter legend “Goose” Tatum, has evolved into a worldwide sports phenomenon.

The Harlem Wizards show is built on a foundation of fundamental basketball, serious skill, trick hoops, acrobatic slams and dynamic personalities that engage the audience. The team relies on their skill and competitiveness as they face a new team each night.

The Wizards vs FDU game will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Rothman Center on FDU’s Metropolitan Campus, located on University Plaza Drive, off Hackensack Avenue South, close to Route 4.
