Syracuse Herald- All-Syracuse Ready For Tilt With Utica Five
State Leaguers Expect To Win From Local Tossers Wednesday Night
For the first time in several years, Syracuse basketball fans will have an opportunity to see a State League professional basketball quintet in action Wednesday night when the Utica quintet plays the All-Syracuse court tossers at the State Armory court. This should be one of the hardest games on the schedule of the local tossers and will be an acid test for them. Syracuse has played two games so far this season and have won both of them with ease. Although down in the league standings the visitors are said to be represented with an exceptionally strong aggregation. One-half of the game will be played under professional rules and the other period A.A.U. rules will be used. Manager Crisp may not be able to get into the contest Wednesday as he is still suffering from a sprained ankle which he received two weeks ago. It is likely that his position will be filled by Martin, who played last week.
