The New York State Basketball League enjoyed a banner season. The defending champion Albany Senators club took first-half honors handily. Barney Sedran and Marty Freidman remained the heart of the Senators. The remainder of the well-disciplined squad included Harry Riconda, Ray Kennedy, and Leo Duval with Jack Nugent in reserve. In the second half, however, they played poorly at the outset, but rallied with ten straight victories to finish in a second-half tie with Utica. Dick Leary, the veteran captain of the Utica team, performed at his best but the better-balanced Albany team took the playoff and with it the overall league crown.
