WICKSBURG, Ala. (WDHN) — The Wicksburg Panther basketball teams will be receiving an upgrade in equipment.

The Houston County Board of Education approved for them to buy a Dr. Dish basketball machine, which is an over $6,000 purchase. The funds are coming from the local school fund.

Pretty much this basketball machine catches the rebound of a shot and shoots a pass to a player.

This will allow players to practice their shots on their own time without having to worry about running to get a rebound.
