The Pennsylvania Basketball State League enjoyed a strong third season, featuring former Troy stars Andy Suils and Jack Inglis as the leaders of a powerful club in Carbondale that dominated the season with twenty-seven wins in their first twenty-nine games. Suils, a crafty defensive specialist, proved to be an able floor leader in his role as player-coach. Inglis teamed with set-shooting whiz Elmer Ripley and young center Spike MacIntyre to provide the team’s scoring. Wilkes-Barre was handicapped in the defense of its league title by the loss of high-scoring Sam Curlett to Trenton of the EBL and did well to hold onto second place. Nanticoke finished third behind the strong performances of Dick Leary and Chief Muller.Fourth place Pittston was the circuits most improved team; largely due to the powerful presence of ex-Interstate League star Garry Schmeelk.
