Kids of all ages had a rollicking, frolicking good time on the Riverhead High School basketball court last night when the Harlem Wizards came to town.

The Wizards are known for razzle-dazzle, hoops hijinks and comedy on the court  — and last night, they did not disappoint. 

The Riverhead Central Faculty Association fielded a team of brave and good-natured souls to take on the visiting team, but they found themselves ever-so-slightly out-matched. It was all in good fun and all for a good cause: raising money for the RCFA scholarship fund. The annual crowd-pleasing event raise more than $10,000, organizer Greg Wallace said.
