WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Fans at the Westchester Knicks home opener Wednesday will see an exciting slate of in-game elements including performances by the Knicks City Dancers and appearances by several New York Knicks alumni.
The Westchester Knicks, the official NBA Development League affiliate of the New York Knickerbockers, will tip off their inaugural home schedule at 7 p.m. at the Westchester County Center against the Canton Charge. Prior to the game, the national anthem will be performed by West Point Staff Sergeant Jeremy Gaynor, while the Department of Public Safety Ceremonial Unit will present the colors.
