The Logan County Little League is once again bringing the Harlem Wizards basketball team to Russellville tonight.

The game will feature the Wizards, who first came to Russellville two years ago, against a group of Russellville/Logan County/Todd Central All-Stars at Russellville High School’s Jim Young Gymnasium. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the game starts at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 at the door and all proceeds will go to help the Logan County Little League.

The last time the Wizards came to town, they provided highlight dunks, funny jokes for the fans, and cute games for the younger kids.

“I felt like everyone left feeling they got every bit of their money’s worth and then some,” said John Myers, who was instrumental in bringing the Wizards to Russellville two years ago. “It was a super fun night that in a lot of ways brought the entire community together.”

The following athletes have committed to playing in the game: Lonnie Mason, Jeff Noffsinger, Calvin Naylor, Jason Petrie, Nathan Thompson, LeMark McMurray, Jae Allison, Timmy Hampton, Tyrone IceMan Kennedy, Mikie Benton, Ryan Davenport, Victor Hampton, Travez Hampton, Imani Hampton, Andre Ragland, Danny Finch and Cassie Redding.
