New York State Basketball  Hall of Fame Members

The Hall of Fame Vision

  Glens Falls, New York has a history rich in basketball traditions since 1920
when the city hosted the Eastern States Tournament, Glens Falls has been
actively involved in high school basketball. In keeping with this tradition,
   a local group of men and women, in conjunction with the Basketball Coaches
 Association of New York, had a vision -- to honor those who have helped basketball
 flourish in New York State. By forming the New York State Basketball Hall of Fame
Committee, a not-for-profit corporation, the group strives to make their vision a reality.
  This reality would take the form of a structure in downtown Glens Falls, New
York, which would house a permanent museum to honor hall of fame inductees and
New York State basketball traditions. With its reputation as the home of the New
York State High School Basketball Championships, Glens Falls is the naturall ocation choice.
  To achieve the dream we need your help. If you, your company or organization
share our vision, you can show your support by becoming a member of the New York
State Basketball Hall of Fame Hoopsters Club.
Your help will make our vision a reality...
