The Sioux Wheelers, a wheelchair basketball team from the Sioux Falls area will take on men from the El Riad Shrine tonight (Thursday) in a wheelchair basketball game.

The game is a fundraiser for the Sioux Wheelers who are raising money to travel to Louisville, Kentucky in April to compete in the National Wheelchair Basketball Tournament. Last year, the team went and finished second in the country.

Tonight's game tips-off at 7:00 p.m. and is being held at Axtell Park Middle School. There is no cost to get in, but a freewill offering will be taken during the game.

Dick Neu, who heads up the Sioux Wheelers, says there's a reason why they chose to play the Shriners:
