The state semifinals and championships could be returning to Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls in 2020 after a recommendation from the State Basketball Committee and officers from the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Friday.
The NYSPHSAA Executive Committee will have the final say when it votes on the matter in February.
Bids for the state event were submitted by Cool Insuring Arena, the Times Union Center and Floyd L. Maines Veterans Memorial Arena in Binghamton, which will conclude its current three-year run of hosting the final four games this upcoming season.
Glens Falls had hosted the state final four games continuously for 36 years before the NYSPHSAA Executive Committee voted 14-8 to move the event to Binghamton beginning in 2017. Before that vote, the State Basketball Committee had backed Glens Falls and NYSPHSAA officials had backed Binghamton.
