OXFORD – The Harlem Rockets comedy basketball team is playing against the Oxford Hot Shots at the Oxford Academy High School gymnasium on Friday at 7 p.m. This family entertainment is a fundraiser sponsored by the Oxford Community Youth Center (OCYC) and After School Program (ASP). The very talented Rockets are getting ready to blast into Oxford for an outstanding show and a memorable, fun-filled night for the community.
For this special event, Oxford’s own dream team, the Oxford Hot Shots, have graciously agreed to play the Harlem Rockets. The Hot Shots are local talents that include faculty from all three Oxford schools, support staff, and a few fearless volunteers from the Oxford Fire Department. The Hot Shots members’ basketball prowess is as varied as their backgrounds, but the bravery of our local heroes will carry them to the hardwood floor to face their ‘leggy’ competition. How will they do against the fancy footwork and trickery of their hoopster foes? The only way to see who will prevail is to be there that Friday night.
