OESJ High School seniors and faculty members will team up to face the Harlem Rockets Comedy Basketball Team at 6 p.m., Thursday, March 6 in the high school gym.

A ziti dinner, also to benefit the senior class, will run from 4-5:45 p.m. the day of the game. Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door for ziti, salad, roll, drink and dessert. 

See any member of the OESJ Class of 2014 for game or dinner tickets or contact Stephanie Johnson at the high school or email her at stephanie.johnson@oesj.org.

Having played over 2500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy.  

The Rockets lineup include former Harlem Globetrotter Clarence “Mugsy” Leggett and Cliff “Jet Blue” Malone, who was featured in a Nike commercial released on Super Bowl Day.  Also playing for the Rockets is James “Speedy “Williams, who was featured in the movie “Above The Rim” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin.
