1950-51 Scranton Miners (ABL)

1950-51 SCRANTON MINERS
AMERICAN BASKETBALL LEAGUE (II)

The Miners managed to hold of rival Wilkes-Barre through the regular season, winning the ABL pennant. However, when the league's playoff-system was abandoned due to the withdrawal of the Wilkes-Barre team and Paterson and Bridgeport's failure to secure a home court, Scranton was declared the ABL champions.
