“For many, the basketball court at the Cool Insuring Arena has a certain mystique,” stated Glens Falls Mayor Bill Collins.  “In fact, some will say our basketball court is ‘sacred.’  From Mullen to Laettner, from Marbury to Huerter, from Jimmer to JG III.” 

“We may be ‘partial’ to a few of our Hometown USA favorites,” continued Collins, “but this list doesn’t even cover some of the legendary coaches or basketball programs that consistently win their Sectional Tournaments and withstand the rigors of the State Tournament to get to this weekend.  It’s why we say ‘The Road to Glens Falls. Where Legends are Made’.” 

“The Boys Basketball Tournament Committee and all the Volunteers make this weekend so special,” says Collins.  “Bill Higgins, Tom Sullivan, and Bill Wetherbee may no longer be with us, but their spirit lives on with how memorable this weekend continues to be.  And everyone who comes to Glens Falls for the Tournament can do so knowing they can check out our many restaurants, coffee shops, and attractions in one of the safest cities in the United States.”
