[Edwin] Ubiles scored a franchise record 55 points in a 135-112 win against the New York Court Kings. He had 12 points in the first quarter and 23 through the opening 24 minutes, before exploding in the second half of a game the home team never trailed at Washington Avenue Armory.
“I hope I didn’t take too much energy out of him,” Albany coach Derrick Rowland said, noting the team just getting back from a rugged road trip out west. “But when Eddie’s going like that, you’ve got to keep him out there and give him the ball.”
“We are trying to get this thing back on track. We know we have the players to do it,” Ubiles said. “I haven’t been aggressive like this all year long.”

I had the pleasure of calling this came last night. It seemed no matter what Eddie did, the ball found a home in the basket. Ubiles shot threes, drove the lane, got to the line and imposed his will on a record setting night.
Ubiles eclipsed teammate and Albany native Lloyd Johnson, who previously tied the record last season when he scored 53 points. Johnson did not suit up last night, but was on hand for the Albany Patroons 135-112 rout of the New York Court Kings.
The Patroons started their season 7-1, but have since lost six of their last 10 games. They Currently hold the fourth and final playoff spot in the standings while leading the San Diego Waves by half a game with a little over a month left in the season. They play host to the New York Court Kings on Monday at the Washington Avenue Armory in the second of a two game mini series. Tip off is slated for 7 pm.
