New York Corporate Basketball League
-Playoff Memo-


A note from
Commissioner Steve Frenchman &
Associate Commissioner Steve Stein:

Playoffs will begin on March 6th for all Divisions except for the Colonial Division. Colonial Division playoffs will be posted tomorrow, March 3 and playoffs for Colonial Division will start the week of March 13. Brackets can be accessed by clicking on your division in the column to the right. In order to qualify for the playoffs, teams must have accumulated at least ten (10) standings points during the regular season. 

Some teams and divisions might play twice in one week. Players who play on more than one team might well have conflicts; nevertheless, once the playoff committee sets the schedule, even if there are inequities or conflicts, no postponements will be permitted.To be fair to everyone, playoffs are scheduled "blindly", without regard to individual teams scheduling preferences.

Prior to the Interleague Finals at Madison Square Garden in April, The New York Corporate Basketball League will proudly present The 16th Annual Cantor Fitzgerald Cup To the Winner of The Top Flight Division. The award given in honor of the Cantor Fitzgerald Team that won the Top Flight Division Championship in the Winter of 2000-01, will be presented in a special ceremony.

All divisional winners advance to play at The World's Most Famous Arena, Madison Square Garden (scheduling permitted) against our sister league, The Lawyers Basketball League Divisional Champions. All players will receive Championship Sweat Shirts and Trophies at MSG.

For purposes of playoff seedings, we added back all points that were deducted as a result of forfeit penalties, revised the standings accordingly and then created the seedings in the usual manner i.e. 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6 etc. In so doing, teams were seeded more closely to their respective strength and we hope, more fairly. Please note numbers following each team's name in the pairings reflect the revised point totals upon which the seedings were based.

The playoffs always bring heightened intensity and competition, so the League must restate and enforce its standards of conduct and rules regarding eligibility. Please review our policies in these areas and call the office if you have any questions regarding a player's eligibility. Also don't forget the rule which requires a player to have played in at least three (3) regular season games to be eligible for the playoffs. This is not the time to bring in "ringers."

Important! All players must bring valid picture ID, which may be checked against Team Roster Forms, to all playoff games as it will be a prerequisite to playing in all playoff games.

If we find that a team has intentionally manipulated or broken League rules, we will have to rule against you to maintain the integrity of the playoffs. Penalties can include forfeited games and even permanent barring of players and teams from the League. Don't embarrass your team, your firm, and the League. All of us want the players to decide the outcome of the game, not the League!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL TEAMS!
