Showtime in Havelock

“We are having a good time, putting on a good performance for the crowd,” Howe said. “This game, we have a little more tricks and a little more fun, and more dunking.”

Other Streetball stars included Roscoe “Dunkin” Johnson and former Chowan basketball player Phoenix Butler-Poole.

Poole likes to pull up and drain buckets.

“It’s fun and a lot of excitement, not just for the crowd, but for me as well,” Poole said. “I shoot the ball. I’m a sharp-shooter.”

The game was played with a commentator, a D.J. and some loud music.

“We are playing it competitive and they are seeing things they don’t normally see, like Harlem Globetrotter stuff or the And1 Mixtape stuff, crazy ball-handling and people high-flying,” Gill said.

Prior to the game, a skills clinic was held at the Havelock Recreation Center.
