It may look like basketball but it’s actually clownball according to the Harlem Crowns Basket-ball team.

On Nov. 3, the team with all their shananigans, played a full arena at Kwah Hall against both the boys and girls basketball teams from Fort St. James Secondary School.

The enthusiastic crowd laughed their way through every gag and comic routine the Crowns had to offer.

The Harlem Crowns tour regularly and according to the team, every game is different. They are the masters of ad lib and they take advantage of every situation.

Some might wonder where they get their gags. But each team member just seems to go with the flow depending on the time, situation and who they are playing.

Both secondary school teams played well and with great team spirit as they themselves had no idea of what would come next.

But the Harlem Crowns aren’t just about getting laughs. Each team member possesses great skill and basketball ability along with a flare for comedy.

They are also all about promoting showmanship and good team spirit. Harlem Crown Luke Rahman says that sports have become a form of communication for youth all over the world.

And this was true as the boys and girls form Fort St James Secondary School put on a good fight and a great show having lost by just a hair. The end score was 75 – 80 for the Crowns.
