Basketball Tournament Brings Hometown Hoopla

Basketball teams in New York State all strive to get to one destination: Glens Falls NY. The city is preparing to welcome top teams in the state for the The New York State Basketball Tournament held March 19-21, 2010 and the New York State Federation Tournament of Champions held March 26-28, 2010. As the host, the Glens Falls Civic Center is preparing for exciting back-to back weekends of basketball.

Hometown hoopla in downtown. To advertise the tournament this year, downtown Glens Falls came up with a new marketing strategy. Basketball banners and lights decorate downtown Glens Falls at three main intersections, drawing attention locally to the tournament.

The winners of the class AA, A and B boys and girls state finals go on to the Federation Tournament of Champions. Tickets for each State Basketball Tournament and Federation Tournament session are $10. Buy tickets for the New York State Basketball Tournament and the New York Federation Tournament.
