Albany | The Albany Patroons needed an owner to ensure their survival for another season.
Dr. Tim Maggs wanted a team to promote his brand of sports medicine.
They forged a partnership that was announced Wednesday, when Maggs was introduced as the new owner of the professional basketball franchise at a news conference at Washington Avenue Armory.

I can tell you now … this will be fun.
Yesterday, the Albany Patroons held a press conference in which they announced –
- The team now has a well-funded and stable owner, Dr. Timothy Maggs;
- The team will return to the TBL (The Basketball League) and will feature new franchises and new competitions;
- Opening night will be the players’ “ring ceremony” – see, we won the TBL championship last year, in case you’re late to the party …
- Oh yeah, and there’s a new team logo.
Dr. Maggs is well-respected in the field of sports medicine and injuries, and has worked with amateur and professional athletes for the past 35 years. He also has a long-term friendship with Patroons head coach Derrick Rowland, who will return to the sidelines and bring back the core of last year’s championship-winning squad.

Albany | Midway through the third quarter, the third and deciding game of The Basketball League Championship series had all the makings of a game that was going to be decided deep into the fourth quarter.
At least it seemed that way until Joshua Cameron began heating up for the Albany Patroons.
A trio of consecutive 3-pointers, including one than was part of a four-point play, ignited a 20-3 run for the Patroons late in the third and visiting Yakima could not answer as Albany captured the TBL title 124-113 Friday night in front of 2,222 at Washington Avenue Armory.
